Hydrangea Runaway Bride

Wild_VioletWild_Violet Posts: 212
Do you think it is too late to move a couple of hydrangea Runaway Brides that were only planted from containers  a couple of months ago? They are quite small still and I fear I have planted them in the ground in too deep shade.  I have two new large terracotta pots and was thinking of putting them into them, in a partial shade position. Thanks 😊

    Shade wouldn't necessarily be a problem if the soil's suitable, but if they've only been there a short while, it wouldn't be a problem to move them. 
    Just make sure they're well watered before lifting, and the soil in the containers is also good. Not just compost - that's no use for shrubs long term.  :)
    Terracotta isn't great for plants which need a lot of water because it soaks up a lot, so you'll need to be vigilant with watering, especially over summer. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
