Hydrangea Blues

I've got the hydrangea blues.

via Martha Stewart
Look how gorgeous Martha's hydrangeas are. I'm jealous. I desperately wanted hydrangeas for my wedding last year, and even went and bought my own plants - determined to grow my own flowers when florists all over Brisbane were adamant the blooms wouldn't be available.

Neither plant did too well - I mistakenly put them both in full shade. Both are still hanging in there so we'll see what happens this coming summer. In the meantime - look at what I spotted in the Garden Express catalogue in this month's Gardening Australia...

Hydrangea plants!

Averaging at $5 a pop they're a good dealer cheaper than the $17 pots at Bunnings last year.

And look at their peonies...

Mmm, combining my love of nurseries with my love on online shopping can only have disastrous results for my savings..

  1. I received that catalogue and DID notice those hydrangeas, they're stunning!
    I have some in the garden but my soil makes them pink instead of the blue I'd like :)
