Hydrangeas ready to show by mid June?

My middle son is getting married this June and his fiancée has express a wish that the front of the house they are going to live in should have a row of Hydrangea bushes/plants in pots placed along the front of the house.  Is it possible to obtain any such plants that will be making a reasonable show by June?

    Or try https://signaturehydrangeas.co.uk who grow their own and might be able to supply you with ones in flower.

    Many thanks K67 for finding such a pair of fascinating collections of Hydrangeas.

    If you want Hydrangeas that will definitely be in bloom for the wedding, you're probably best off looking for specimens with blooms or flower buds in the garden centres a bit closer to the time. (Nurseries will often bring them into flower a bit earlier to make them more saleable).

    I bought a couple in Homebase today that looked as though they had been packed for Mothers Day at £5.00 each.  They are about 12 inches high from the lip of the pot they are in and about 12 wide.  Bearing in mind the wedding is mid June could anyone suggest how large they could be if I kept them in my green house until then?

    Did you manage to do this in time for the wedding @BML?
