Prior to planting make sure the root ball of the Hydrangea 'Doppio Azzuro' and/ or 'Doppio Bianco’ is well-moistened by soaking in a bucket of lukewarm water. Put a layer of potsherds in the base of the pot, then fill 2/3rds with potting soil. Remove the plant from the nursery pot and set the root ball in the middle of the pot at the correct depth, the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill with potting soil to 2 cm below the rim of the pot, press firmly and water immediately.
It goes without saying that these hydrangeas also grow perfectly in the open ground.
Water your hydrangea macrophylla 'Doppio Azzuro’ and ‘Doppio Bianco’ on a regular basis during dry periods as they are not tolerant of dry soil. For an extra rich bloom add fertiliser (for flowering plants) to the water once a month between March and July. In early spring the hydrangea will benefit from a mix of granulated cow manure.
There are two types of flower heads in the hydrangea variety macrophylla:
- Globed flower heads (mop heads) with mostly male flowers.
- Flat spreading flower heads (lacecaps) with male flowers around the edges and female flowers in the centres.
These hydrangeas 'Doppio Azzuro' and/ or 'Doppio Bianco’ also look stunning in bouquets and flower arrangements too!
