My Parent's Hydrangeas

Here are the details on my parent's hydrangeas:

- They fertilize them with 0-40-40 and 46-0-0 in the early spring and middle of the summer.  You could also use 13-13-13 fertilizer.
- They are watered every other day with the yard sprinklers and they water them in between on really hot days.
- They trim them back after the blooms are gone.  Usually the middle of the summer.
- The plants are also about 25 years old.  That helps a lot!  :)

I'm jealous! Seriously, I have 2 and have only seen one flower one time. Not a good fertilizer person, maybe that's the secret. Thanks for the tip!
