Finally — it’s hydrangea buying time – almost. In May it seems that the stores and nurseries get their shipments of hydrangeas in just in time for Mother’s Day. So the weekend and week just before the holiday is an excellent time to shop for hydrangeas.
Last year was the first time I had bought the plants myself. That’s the Endless Summer blue in my picture and it did give me some very pretty light blue flowers. My yard is still in desperate need of landscaping, but it should be in better shape this year once my plants come into bloom. Last season I had hoped to find a variety of colors to choose from and I was not disappointed!
Last May I bought six hydrangea plants at The House By The Side of The Road in Wilton, New Hampshire and I only stopped there (at six) because my cart was full!
They offered a wide selection to choose from and all of them looked very lush and healthy. I expected to pay a lot since hydrangeas are popular flowers, but the pricing was reasonable I thought and ranged from $29.99 to $36.99 each and they were large plants.
I have a lot of shade in my yard, but fortunately hydrangeas can take the shade – as long as they do get some sun. So this is the year I will see just how well they took to spending winter in my yard.
