Potted Hydrangea Care
1. Choose the Right Pot
“Make sure that the bottom of your container has holes to allow excess water to flow though,” McEnaney says. “If there’s no drainage and too much water collects around the roots, it can prevent blooms from developing and cause the leaves to wilt.” For pot size, it ultimately depends on how many hydrangeas you want to plant inside and if you want to use any other kinds of flowers. With larger containers, because they hold more soil and more water, you won’t have to water them as frequently.
When it comes to the planting process, it’s similar to what you would do with in-ground hydrangeas, but you’ll use pre-mixed, bagged potting soil. “Fill the decorative container with potting soil, leaving roughly eight inches open on top,” McEnaney says. “Place the hydrangea in the center of the container and fill with soil.” Leave one inch of space between the soil and top of the container so nothing will overflow when you water the plant. If you have a larger container, you can also mix in other flowers for a colorful look—check out some container gardening ideas for inspiration.
3. Don’t Forget to Water
Like in-ground hydrangeas, the ones in planters need a lot of water. To determine if your flowers need water, you can use the same method of sticking your fingers in the soil to gauge dryness. McEnaney says container hydrangeas might need more water since they’re not established in the ground and have less soil to soak up the water.
