Wet spring, wet summer, the garden has survived despite the earwigs, I leave them little pots of veg. oil to swim in, at least I'm keeping them in control. the eat the aphids so I guess a few is necessary - Just stop eating my plants.I'm having a difficult time trying to get my clematis to bloom.  Troubles in flower land..

A few years ago I ruthlessly attacked my hydrangea bushes cutting out all the dead branches & ones I didn't want. I thought wow I don't have much left now but it has filled back in & looks good now. ours are on the south side & get mainly sun. Our gardens are being ignored so far this year.  I have almost got the branches cleared off the lawn (past my deadline) both my wife & I have not been well this year, so we haven't been able to keep up with everything. Things are just starting to bloom now. Our last tulip had its bloom fall off last week. Because of the effect of the cool off the water we are usually a few weeks behind our neighbours.

Can anyone give me some advice about Hydrangea Bushes.  We have three in our Garden that have been their about 12 years.  They used to be beautiful but for the past two year and it looks like this year they have come up as usual but don't bloom any more.  They are located on the south side of our garden and get sun for most of the day.

Where do you have them planted Charles? I had three that were in mostly shade and and I transplanted them into the sun and they took off.  Also, you need to mulch round their roots.  They like to be cool around them. Do you prune them back each year.  I know some like that , but I've found that even though some of the branches look dead, leave them and you'll see new leaves come on what you thought was dead wood.  I don't cut off any until just about now..
