I am a recently first time homeowner, gardener, and now forum writer reaching out for some assistance with my newly planted hydrangeas. I planted them a few weeks ago at my Ohio home in the front yard which faces North. It seems so far I have had "success" with half of the plants which appear full and green with tiny tiny flower buds. The other half not so much, they appear wilted and sad. Unfortunately, I think the healthy ones may even be getting too much sun with slight browning around the leaves. I did not water as much at first due to many days of heavy rain, but now as it heats up I am watering more frequently. I just began ensuring that I am watering at the base of the plant because unfortunately I missed that memo at first as well. I've read that the first year is always rough, but any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
