Fingers Crossed

We have a lace leaf Hydranga on one side of the yard.  We decided to move it to another side of the yard.  Of course, I make this decision after it's already started to come back to life.  That's how I roll.

I also realized as my son and I were digging that the cinder block wall put in before we moved in runs right over half the root ball, so there was a large amount of sweating, grunting, swearing...and that was just the boy.

We finally got it moved.  So, fingers crossed as this is one of my wife's favorite plants.


  1. Lots of water and shade it if needed while it settles in. Good luck!

  2. Theyr'e tougher than you might think. I have one that has been uprooted and moved the length of England twice. This was sentimentality at work, rather than some bizarre form of hortensia-focused sadism. Anyway, it seems happy enough.

    Nice blog, by the way.
