Heritage Museums and Gardens Offers Hydrangea Series

SANDWICH –Hydrangeas inspire both professional and amateur gardeners with their beauty and versatility, but need proper care to ensure colorful blooms year after year.

Heritage Museums and Gardens, the largest public garden in Southern New England, is offering a how-to hydrangea series that will deepen knowledge of Cape Cod’s most iconic and favorite flower and increase growing success.

Those who sign up for all three workshops in the series by April 20 will receive a special discount.

The workshops include a Hydrangea Pruning Workshop, Success with Hydrangeas Workshop and a Hydrangea Winterizing Workshop, all led by Heritage Hydrangea Curator Mal Condon, who has been collecting, propagating and growing hydrangeas for more than 40 years.

The Hydrangea Pruning Workshop on April 22 and 23, provides information on how to selectively prune plants to improve vigor, increase bloom density, control height and enhance ornamental value.

In the “Success with Hydrangeas Workshop” on May 18, participants will learn about species attributes and shortcomings, plant site selection, planting best practices and bloom color control.

The third program, the Hydrangea Winterizing Workshop on November 4, provides information on how to protect Hydrangea macrophylla.

Register for all three workshops and receive a discount of $25 for museum members and $55 for non-members.
