Hidden Hydrangea blooms
As per the photos, I have a Hydrangea (mop head I think) where the blooms are hidden behind other very leafy stalks and I suspect this is probably down to my "care & maintenance" but would appreciate any advise please on how I might better look after them and ensure the blooms are more visible in future.
To me, the blooms look very healthy and are the biggest I have seen on this particular plant. I have fed it well this year and did prune in the spring but wonder if I could have done something better?
A different Hydrangea (not sure this is a mop head, see below) immediately adjacent to this one has also bloomed as well as ever this year, albeit only lately (September) and still not finished. Again fed well and pruned in Spring. These blooms don't look as "full" and I'm not sure if this is the type of Hydrangea or again something I could have done better.
All advice to these novice green fingers is very welcome.
