Pruning Hydrangeas in Spring
One of the most common gardening questions is “When should I prune my hydrangeas?” As those billowy big blooms turn from cheery blues, purples, pinks, reds and whites to boring browns we all tend to want to run out with the clippers and hack away. So, is now the time to do that?
Yes and no. It depends on the type of hydrangea you have, and there are many. First, know hydrangeas do not have to be pruned — unless the shrub has grown too large for its space or unruly and needs a little shaping up. Otherwise, you can simply clean up the plant by removing dead branches and deadheading spent blooms.
