Tea Time Early Blue
The many clusters of lavender/blue flowers create the much loved Hydrangea mophead.
Keeping the blue, blue ...Blue flowering Hydrangeas require an acid soil. To maintain the blue colouring it is recommended to use a good quality acid tonic such asYates Hydrangea Blueing Tonicwhich not only acidifies the soil but is also rich in nitrogen and potassium for healthy green leaf growth and beautiful flowers. NB Pink varieties require an alkaline soil a supplement of Lime will achieve this.
Best growing conditions
Hydrangea prefer a dappled shade location and well drained soil. These varieties will respond well to a slow release fertiliser in spring, and a hard prune late winter to maintain shape, encourage new fresh growth and even more flowers in the coming season.
How to plant
The compact habit of the Hydrangea varieties create an impressive display especially when in full flower. Tea Time varieties are spectacular when used as a feature in courtyard gardens, patio pots and even bowls. As this variety is from the Compact range, pots from 10-14cm will give an exceptional performance when displayed outside or in.
