This year I decided to forgo the basket dropped into
this black urn at my front door and plant Hydrangeas instead.
I was a little skeptical
and thought how will they survive ......
and will they go from white blooms to blue.
After doing some research I picked up a box of soil acidifier.
I added it to water per the directions and watched with delight
the changing of the colour. This happened over time. (not magical)
From a creamy white to to a light purple.
Then they changed to blue.
What a beautiful show they are having at my front door.
In the fall I will plant them in the garden
near my pink hydrangeas and continue with the acidifier.
I have for many years grown white annabelle
hydrangeas but never beautiful blue or pink.
We have a hydrangea in the side garden that has never bloomed since
we moved here 5 years ago. So I decided to wrap it in burlap last fall
and not to prune it till this spring. Guess I did something right.
It's flowering ...I also added the soil acidifier to this plant.
I can see the pink showing through.
Can't wait for it to bloom!! I will definitely take pictures to show.
How are your plants blooming!!
As always thanks for stopping by!
Love hearing from you !
