Well, I went "all in" today. I bought three Hydrangeas and one Rhododendron.
The Rhododendron is a PJM compact variety.
The three Hydrangeas are: Incrediball (arborescens), Vanilla Strawberry (panicle) and limelight (panicle).
I am replacing the two Endless Summer hydrangeas and a butterfly bush that still are showing no life after our long hard winter.
I will be amending the soil with Dr Earths Acid loving plant mix and Espoma Soil Acidifier.
Soil pH meter is on order and will be arriving shortly.
Hopefully things will go well, I added 6 cubic yards of hard woods mulch to my planting beds this year to go along with my nice black dirt.
Any tips or advise? Thanks
