How To Care

When planting your First Editions Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant Hydrangeas. Avoid planting hydrangeas in summer when temperatures are mid80s or higher.

The Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea requires full sun to part shade and prefers moist, well-drained, fertile soil. In hot climates, hydrangeas will do best with some shade. This variety's color is not affected by soil pH. Throughout its life a Hydrangea will do best with a deep watering once weekly during hot temperatures. Mulching at about 3 inches deep is highly recommended for hydrangeas. Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your plant in extreme temperatures. Choose a balanced, slow release fertilizer for flowering plants. Fertilize once in spring after the last chance of frost and again in early summer for best results. You don’t need to prune hydrangeas, but pruning after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant. You can also prune (even heavily to control size) in winter as this hydrangea blooms on new wood.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. The First Editions collection is pest and disease resistant making care a breeze!

Gorgeous plant arrived very quickly

Awesome! The plant was properly packaged. Arrived very fast after I ordered. It's a 3 gallon plant and it's gigantic with beautiful flowers already making an aesthetic statement in my garden.

Vanilla Strawberry Hydragena

My plant was well received, along with my Pink Flowering Almond. I bought the Almond because a Construction Crew ruined my full grown tree and totally broke my heart. The only thing to comfort me from the thoughts of not being able to see it's gorgeous blooms was the thought I was going to receive another from Planting Tree and decided since I got one, another would help or make up for the experience without me loosing it with the construction guys. Some guys are just so Darn Careless, about things like trees and plants. I looked for a really good place to buy my Pink Flowering Almond and saw one just like mine here. It's twin ! I put it in the cart and then I wanted to pick out something else. There were a lot of plants and trees, but I was captivated by this Hydrangea because it had a White top and strawberry bottom. I thought it was really unique. I thought about how lovely it would look on my lawn, still dug up by the "You Know" !!! Anyway, the plants came right off and were packaged extremely well. It is starting to get colder here. I lost my wheelbarrow, but will plant them regardless, even in the rain need be tomorrow. Our weather in Maine is so unpredictable since the Climate Change. Who can deny it really, even wild fires. Not here thank goodness. But we never had storms either, just Blizzards and ice storms, now we get Hurricanes and Tornado's and we aren't use to that. Trees falling on your house. It was never like that before. So the plants came really Healthy and Fresh. I could smell their freshness. It was heavenly. As much as everyone is excited to see their plants next Spring, so am I. I will be back for more besides. Customer care was excellent and things were sent quickly and well packaged. My Hydrangea still had some blooms on it. So happy I could find comfort by just adding more of these Healthy Plants to my Garden in my Backyard. I get so excited when Spring comes around to see the plants come up again. The downside is Mud as Tim Samples would tell you. So we have to have something positive to look forward too. Thanks again for your 5 star plants. I will be back ;-)

Hydrangea Arrived In Perfect Condition

Purchasing from Planting Tree was easy! I have never bought live plants online before, but wanted to give it a try because the flowering bushes on the website were so unique and priced very competively. The three plants are in perfect condition, and I was able to get them in the ground in a couple of days. They appear to be thriving, and I can't wait to see their blooms next Spring!
