hi all
this question is about hydrangeas, i took 6 cuttings during the summer and have got them growing nicely in my green house, 3 of them are producing the tell tell signs of flowering, my question is do i let them flower or do i pick the bud out, not sure what to do, im planning to plant them out next summer, so any advice would be a real boon

On plant Hydrangea



Don't let them flower it will take the strength from the plant.
I have some too and one or two are quite tall so next spring will cut them back to encourage a bushy plant, I will then repot them into bigger pots and see how they go. I want plants with strong healthy roots and a nice shape
