Hi Lascelles,

Don't fertilize stressed plants. Sometimes the soil isn't suited for specific plants, i.e. too alkaline or acidic. I'm going to leave that to someone that knows more about that than I do.

It's very important to know what soil type you have. You can adjust the pH, but to me, it's easier to stick with what is recommend for your soil.

Here's a site on growing hydrangeas in Florida-

This might be good to check out for growing info for your area -

hydrangea like shade....

Hydrangeas are a shade plant. If you have them in full sun they will not do well at all. They really need to be shaded in the afternoon.

Also, you might be overwatering them. This is a very common mistake people make with plants - both indoor and outdoor plants.
