I’m glad your hydrangea is happily flowering! Now, we need to get it grow sturdy stems.

Here’s the trick – in early spring, prune the branches back 1/3. This will encourage the branches to grow denser. Also, give it a year or two and it will grow sturdier branches. I’ve seen that happen in my garden.

Thanks for writing!
