HOW DO YOU PLANT THIS?

?.Take the plant out the pot,break the roots a bit dig a hole twice the size of the pot the plant was in,and put the plant in the hole.Fill the hole around the plant and give it a good drink of water. Make sure you don't plant the plant where it gets the full sun in the hottest part of the day. Hydrangeas are classed as woodland plants so they like a heavy mulch and the partly shaded conditions.

Do you think I can plant my mothers day hydrangea in my garden? Would it ever survive a zone 3 winter?

Hydrangeas will never survive the winter in your zone.I would leave it in the pot and put it in semi shade for the summer.

Gloria. Joanna is right. I just checked one of my garden books and hydrangeas will only survive winter temps of -10 to -15. I'm sure in zone 3 it gets colder than that. Greg

I live in zone 3 to maybe 4 and my hydrangeas have generally made it through winter. It get can as an extreme colder than -20 c but usually -8 to -10 for the winter. All I do is put a lot of bark mulch chips around the base. I have two of the mop heads which are a bit more protected from the wind and a panicle Pee Gee, which is much more hardy and barely gets any protection. Why not start with a small pee gee or annabelle and try it? You never know. Your yard might have the right micro-climate to protect them.

There's a big difference between greenhouse grown " Mothers Day" hydrangeas and those normally sold by nurseries for landscaping.Annabelle,noted for its immense, white globes is lised as hardy to zone 2b; " PG " ( panicula grandiflora ) --, blooms conical or pear shaped, hardy to Zone 4 ( or even colder under ideal conditions ).
