Should you deadhead hydrangeas? Best tips on how to prune



Don’t be tempted to deadhead a hydrangea in the winter as the dead blooms can be a great source of protection for the new buds which will arrive in early spring.

Lacecap hydrangeas are a hardier variety, and the faded flower heads can be cut back further than most hydrangeas.

The Royal Horticultural Society recommends that lace caps are deadheaded after flowering, to the second pair of leaves below the head in order to prevent seed developing, which saps energy from the plant.
