The Cape Cod Hydrangea Society – Propagation (members only)

Date TBD 2019

Propagation 101 Taking cuttings from mature plants and striking (sticking, planting) these in appropriate soil mix.

Pinch prune young plants to encourage new branches for a fuller plant. With all types of hydrangea, it pays dividends to build a strong bushy plant before you worry about flowers. The first few years after being planted are the most important for pruning, because it builds the foundation for years to come. As a young plant, it is best to prune or pinch your plant in order to build a full bodied, well-branched plant. Every time you cut off the growing tip of a plant, you get twice as many branches and thus in the long-run, more flowers.

Propagation 201 Transplant 1 and 2 year old plants into larger containers; once again appropriate soil mixes are essential.
