Hydrangeas are a beautiful flowering plant that is deciduous. They can range in size from smaller style bushes to the larger tree-like varieties. If you want to know how to grow hydrangeas, you can create new specimens from cuttings.

Firstly we will start by selecting your cutting. You will need to brush away mulch and soil from the base of the back or side of a mature hydrangea plant. Now look for a non-flowering shoot. The ones to grab are those that have 2 to 3 pairs of leaves. You should also be looking for a cutting that is at the base of the plant.

Remember, the more woodier the cutting, the more roots they will produce. Your cuttings should be 5-6 inches long (12-15 cm’s). Another good tip is to take cuttings in the morning. It is also recommended that you don’t take cuttings if the leaves are wilted.
