Hi Sara,

Sounds like you’ve got it in an ideal spot. Is it getting enough water and nutrients? You should be keeping the soil moist, and feeding with a liquid fertiliser roughly every three-four weeks during the growing season. Also check that the pot has adequate drainage holes – too much water surrounding the roots can be just as detrimental as not enough.

Applying a mulch is also useful in retaining moisture.

Hope this helps! Remember to add to your ‘plants I have’ list to receive regular care instructions: http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/hydrangea-paniculata-grandiflora

Good luck.
Katy
