Preparing for winter
Hydrangea Magic Pinkerbell is unpretentious, but if it freezes in winter, then in the spring you should not expect lush inflorescences. In the fall, you need to remove thin branches and shoots directed to the middle of the bush. Fallen leaves need to be scooped.
The bush should be divided into several parts, the tree-like shoots of each part should be tied, bending to the ground, and fixed. A non-woven material is thrown over the hydrangea, a layer of dry leaves is poured, a film and heavy material are laid that will not blow away the wind. If you follow the description and do everything correctly, then the bush will endure the winter without freezing.
