|The secret to changing their colour is in the soil.|
These 3 Hydrangea plants were in the same garden bed, which I found quite fascinating as they were almost next to one another and still they were different colours. They look so pretty in the garden. I can still remember my great-grandparents having heaps and heaps of these plants everywhere in their garden and I can always remember how beautiful they looked. I used to call them pom poms, because that's what they looked like to me, large pom poms. When I saw these today, they so reminded me of my great-grandmother's home.
If you want your Hydrangeas to be bluer then they need to be in more acid soils and in more Ph soil they go more pink. If you want more information about Hydrangeas then go here. I found this site very informative and easy to read.
Can't resist taking a picture or two of these. Another reminder of my great-grandparents house and the wonderful grandmother that she was to me. These lined the driveway all the way down to the house, alternating in white and blue. I become all sentimental when I see them, as they evoke such wonderful memories.
