This meeting has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. We hope to bring the speaker back next year.

There are several species of hydrangeas commonly grown in New Hampshire, and all of them have very different growth habits and pruning requirements. Fortunately, hydrangeas are really quite simple to care for, as long as you understand which species you have in your garden.
