How to Root Hydrangeas Clippings
Are you ready to make your own hydrangea-heaven? Well, let’s start with just a few plants. Hydrangeas are easier to grow than you think, from merely rooting a few clippings.
Here is the how-to:
Step 1: From a healthy hydrangea plant: clip a 6” branch that did not flower this year.
Step 2: Remove all larger foliage from the bottom of the branch, and clip the largest leaves on top in half.
Step 3: Stick branch is coarse sand in a pot, and add water.
Step 4: Cover with plastic to create mini-greenhouse (optional but useful).
Where to find clippings? Everywhere!
I even found some hydrangeas overhanging the beach at Trevignano Romano, on Bracciano Lake, Italy. What a beautiful spot.
