My post from the past, published back in April, was a simple tutorial on spring pruning Hydrangea paniculata. These are the same hydrangeas today, the flower buds soon to become jumbo sized, white floral cones.
In the lower right corner of the photo you will notice that this plant has no flower buds, a result of my accidentally forgetting to spray deer repellant on time at some point during the summer. It's all good, though. There are enough buds on the plant to compensate for that.
I look forward to sharing a photo of these gorgeous plants in their glory, and that could be very soon!
