I have a hydrangea now in flower. I have been feeding it regularly and now it is taller than me and I am 161cm

It is flopping to the ground in parts. I pruned it early this year because of extreme heat last summer. It is a very healthy plant. Can you advise me when I should prune it. Graham Child Garden Club member

Hi Graham, 

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Best time to prune Hydrangeas is between autumn and winter. Make sure to feed after prune to help encourage new growth for next season.
