Hydrangea dangea

Our hydrangeas keep frekking! They started wilting soon after planting. So I potted them and they soon flourished. Once they were big enough, or so I thought, I de-potted them and replanted them in the soil. Now they once again begin to wilt…

Any ideas? Our soil is fairly sandy, and our climate is dry/windy at the mo.

    I know they like lots of water. As a child we had a damp spot against our wall and they thrived.

    Interesting trivia tidbit about hydrangeas – they’re a good indicator of aluminium content in soil. The bluer they are, the more there is.
