How do you cut back hydrangeas so they will flower again this year??

    Depends which variety you have as some flower on old wood - mop heads and lace caps - and some, such as paniculata forms, flower on new wood.

    Going off at a tangent slightly. When do you take hydrangea cuttings? My friend has a big one in her garden and has promised me a cutting but when do we do them?

    I've always taken cuttings in summer, new growth about 4 inches long. Standard method ie say three to a 4 inch pot, half all purpose compost half grit. Keep just moist in a poly bag in a bright place but no direct sunlight....pot on when rooted...works for me.
