Lacecap Hydrangea

hi we planted a lacecap Hydrangea in the Autumn. It had been in a pot for a few years. It was doing really well until just one branch wilted and died. I cut it off. Now there is amother branch wilting. What's the matter with it.

    It may just be the very warm weather we've been having. Hydrangeas don't like it hot and they do need lots of water. Mine often flop in the heat of the sun, but usually perk up by the evening.
    A photo would help us if you have one

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Hi Pete. I would agree with you but it's only one branch. The first branch that did this didn't perk up but died. I took a photo but don't know what's happened to it. I'm new to this site.

    There's a problem uploading photos atm apparently Christine.
    Usually fixed by the morning.
    I wonder if the roots have not ventured far into the soil from the time of planting for some reason.
    Off the top of my head I can't think of anything.
    Hopefully someone else will have some ideas and that we get to see your photo

    As it's only the one branch affected, I would check for any damage lower down.  I've had seemingly healthy plants unexpectedly wither on one side, on closer inspection the lower stems have been slug stripped image.  They got half a clematis earlier this year.

  • Couldn't see anything but will keep an eye on it.

    Thanks for replying.
