Planting & Replanting: Hydrangea Success Series
This popular and extensive webinar is for gardeners who wish to learn more about Heritage’s successful practices for planting – both in-ground and in containers.
While the focus of this workshop is hydrangeas, the planting techniques and soil creation and amendment procedures are largely universal to most of the woody ornamentals you would plant on the Cape. The important best practices for mulching, fertilizing, and hydrangea bloom color control will be thoroughly addressed.
Additionally, of all the hydrangea species, H.macrophyllas are the best suited to container growing. This method is the surest way to obtain reliable blooming – even on Cape Cod! Best of all, container growing provides an effective “mobility factor” – a comparatively easy and efficient way to move and protect these cold-sensitive plants from winter. Our Curator of Hydrangeas, Mal Condon, is particularly fond of this growing method and has developed superior ways to enhance the growth and protection attributes through his “Pot-N-Pot” and “Bag-N-Pot” growing techniques that he will share in detail.
The live webinar will include time for questions, as well as a PDF of the slides for your reference. All program registrants will receive a link to the video recording, available for 48 hours after the event. Advance registration is required. Don’t miss this important “how-to” workshop – register today!

Early in 2014 they relocated to Yarmouth Port on Cape Cod where they have created another significant hydrangea collection in their new location.
