Hydrangeas are an asset to any garden due to their exuberant and long-lasting flowering. But it is precisely this inflorescence that is the reason that this plant starts preparations early in the season. This means that you will soon see the buds growing in the hydrangeas in the spring. But it is precisely this rapid development that makes the plant very sensitive to frost damage. You should therefore pay extra attention to the hydrangeas during this period. Are there buds in the plant and is night frost predicted? Plants that are in the ground must then be covered with a fleece cloth. If the plants are in pots, a frost-free spot is a necessity.

Hydrangea frozen and now what?
If you want to save your hydrangea, it is important that you start with a good and extensive inspection of the plant. Is the hydrangea turning brown? Then that’s no reason to panic. The hydrangea gets brown leaves because the plant is shocked by the low temperatures and reacts to it to protect itself. You don’t have to remove the brown leaves if the hydrangea seems to be able to recover itself. However, if black leaves and/or branches develop, then those parts of the plant can unfortunately no longer be saved.
