White Hydrangea flowers have gone brown

    Autumn is here - flowers don't last for ever - they'll fade and turn brown and papery.  

    Leave the flower heads on over winter to  protect the buds below them from the winter weather, then cut the dead flower heads off in May and the new growth will start to appear.

    They're preference is shade Jackie, so your 'sunny' one will tend to go over quicker. Make sure they have plenty of water - especially if the site's sunnier. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

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

    Too much sun and not enough water!
