Two summers ago one of my hydrangeas put on a spectacular blooming show. It was covered in gorgeous pink blossoms. I was amazed and thrilled as plant was only 2 summers old in my garden.
Last year I was disappointed with fewer, less pink blossoms.
Then my neighbor one day told me she found a large sack of garden lime that had been left behind by a previous resident moldering in her backyard not 10 feet away from my beautiful hydrangea.
My neighbor dug up and disposed of the lime.
Do you suspect the removal of this underground lime source has something to do with my lack of bloom and color?
Would you suggest I sprinkle lime by my little plant, or rebury some?
I am so excited to get back into my garden and encouraging this hydrangea is a priority for summer 2009.
Thank you for your help.
