A lovely Christmas gift
Our hydrangeas are all coming into display right now. Our stock beds are in full flower and look stunning. My mother in-law who lives in Katikati has just been to stay and had a lovely time walking around with her camera, trying to decide which ones she could fit into her garden back home.
Our garden produces beautiful blue and purple hydrangeas; there are a few pink / red varieties that are holding their colour well in our acid soils. The whites look lovely too at the moment though they will start to burn a little as we do not have shade for them yet.
Our shade houses though are all pink and red as they are growing in pots. This is a great way to grow pink and red hydrangeas if you live among blue hydrangeas growing in acid soil, as potting mix generally does not contain aluminium.
I was walking through the shade house and thought what a lovely Christmas gift they would make as they are coming into bloom. Varieties that I would recommend at the moment include:
