My hydrangea leaves are not fully leafed out this year. Very small. Looking for someone to tell my why!

Smith County Texas

Expert Response

The problem may be that the plant has too many stems; if you want large leaves and flowers you have to prune the stems so there are  only 5 to 6 stems per plant. The other possibility may be from the lack of fertility.  Compost and/or decomposed mulch should help.

Good luck for next year!
