I love hydrangeas and so I went crazy and purchased two oakleafs and planted those two weeks ago. I then purchased more flowers and sat them on the side of the house and my daughter was supposed to water them until I could plant them. I think she overwatered them... I went to plant the quickfires and one was dried out...with a few leaves still alive so I didn't plant it but pulled off all the leaves and cut off all the dried blooms trying to save it.
I planted the other but in two days it looked the same way... I'm not sure whether to dig it up again and put it in a pot or leave it there and cut back all the leaves and dried blooms and see how it goes...please help!!!
The oakleafs are yellowed on the bottom leaves and some leaves on bottom are gone...I stopped the watering...she was supposed to just water them all for a few minutes but was leaving the sprinkler on for long periods of time...heavy sigh! Also, one oakleaf has bug holes in it and I guess I need to spray that one???
Any help would be appreciated, I'm thinking my investments are now firewood!
