Hydrangea plants should be pruned following the one-third rule, which means cutting them down to one-third the total size. Make sure you prune your Hydrangea plants correctly with advice from a third-generation flower grower in this free video on gardening.
Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we're going to talk about how to prune hydrangeas. Now hydrangeas are a gorgeous plant that grow best in the shade. So the materials that you will need are a hydrangea and a pair of scissors. So first step, pick off all the dead leaves off of the plant. Second step, follow the one-third rule, only cut your hydrangea down about one-third of the total size. So once you've trimmed your hydrangea back about one-third, then just leave it dormant over the winter and it'll come up and fill up just beautiful for the next summer. They're a great plant to grow.
