I purchased these blue hydrangeas last year from a popular bulb co., they did not die, but they also didn't bloom. Is there a secret to 'exactly' where the location and the soil 'should' be ? Thanks, Deb

Hi!
I think I solved the problem for you. Click again on my picture and it should appear normally.
Thanks for letting me know and enjoy the flowers. Michelle

Perhaps you'll dream of the 'Nikko Blue' hydrangeas that will once again return in glorious full bloom in your garden this summer.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Southern California Gardener's September Checklist
You can modify the color of hydrangea flower heads (which are actually bracts) by changing the pH of the soil. For blue flowers, you'll want to achieve a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. For pink flowers, you want a pH of 7.0 to 7.5. Use an inexpensive soil pH test kit from the nursery or hardware store to test the pH of the soil around the plant's roots. Lower the soil pH by adding sulphur or aluminum sulfate (making the soil more acid). Raise the soil pH by adding ground agricultural limestone (making the soil more alkaline). Follow label directions for application rate and frequency.
