Garden Tips: Pruning Hydrangeas

Posted on: 10:31 am, May 18, 2012, by

Hydrangeas are in full bloom right now, and they’re gorgeous.  George Bennett of Bennett Nurseries shows us how to make a cutting.

Once you have a six-inch cutting, strip of all but the top two leaves, then cut the ends off the leaves.  Dip the stem in rooting hormone powder. Stick it in some sand or vermiculite, and next year, if everything grows as it should, you’ll have a beautiful new hydrangea to plant in your garden.
