Here’s a question that comes up year after year. When do I prune my hydrangea?
The answer is, are you sure you have a hydrangea? We grew up calling just about every shrub with big, rounded flower clusters, snowball bushes. I learned as a young gardener out on my own, that some snowball bushes are hydrangeas and others are viburnums.
Then, I found out, some hydrangea could be pruned early in the season and others should be pruned later in the season.
