I have 2 Blue steel Macrophylia Hydrangeas bought by Our children a couple of years ago, now in large pots. They grew some lovely large blooms on long stems that looked very striking and I’m keen to achieve this look again. However, I’m unsure of how to go about the pruning to achieve this? I’ve not pruned them at all as yet and these are my first Hydrangeas. Any advice is welcome please.

Personally, l leave the flower heads on my potted hydrangeas until the Spring. They look pretty tatty by the end of the winter, but it protects the buds lower down. I then prune back to a strong bud and give them some feed. Yours look nice and healthy !

As for pruning, the RHS offers this advice which is clear and easy to follow - https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=516
