Harold's survival guide
Meet Harold, the Hydrangea. Harold is a fan favourite in gardens and patios everywhere and it is easy to see why. Harold is not afraid to show his impeccable taste and good looks and we're here for it. The French Hortensia as Harolds sometimes referred to, is a winter hardy outdoor plant that can resist temperatures up to -30 C which makes it tolerant to keep year round in many outdoor gardens. You grow Harold!
What type of care your plant needs
Doesn't need extra water, the occasional rainy day will do/Often needs extra water during the summer/Needs to be watered on the regular, keep the soil slightly moist.
What makes Harold so special
The Mophead Hydrangea is best kept in moist but well aerated soil that allows for plenty of water drainage. The best spot for it would be one where the plant is somewhat sheltered from wind gusts if there are any, and gets plenty of sunlight. A few hours a day is enough but the more the better. Prune the heads of this plant in spring and you'll get even bigger, better looking flowers. Hydrangeas are definitely among the thirstier plants out there so be sure to water frequently (at least twice a week in spring and summer). A bit of fertilizer twice a month in spring and summer and you'll check all the boxes!
