    Martha, thanks for sharing your experience. Your comment ended up on the Events page instead of on the page with the discussion of pruning, so I added your message in a new comment in the right spot. Thanks again.

    I have a two year old hydrangea plant, should I prune it and how far can AI prune it. Thank you from West Seneca

    If you have a hydrangea plant, you can find pruning information at Learn how to get better blooms on hydrangeas at Lockwood’s fall fair. Check out the You Tube that is mentioned. If you have a hydrangea tree, you can find more information at How should a Hydrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’ tree be pruned? If you need more detailed information, you can go to a garden center (find local businesses in our gardening directory or click on an ad). You can also contact Cornell Cooperative Extension. Contact information is in the article on the hydrangea tree. I hope that helps.

    Is there some trick to using soaking hoses??? The round black ones that are slightly smaller around than a regular hose are the ones I bought & they are made by Swan so usually a good brand. I have a 100′ perennial bed that I have been nagged about literally for years to put in hoses so I don’t have to spend so much time watering. I bought the hoses last year but they everything got too big before I got them in. This year I fought 125′ of hose in amongst the plants, followed the directions for connecting them (2 hoses, removed the restricter washer from the 2nd hose, but when I connect them to the hose from the house, it floods out the end where it is connected which is the shadier end, & on the hot end it just trickles out & doesn’t do any good. I really thought this was going to be a time saver, but now I’m just thoroughly frustrated!! Any advice?? I even tried taking out the restricter washer thinking that might get the water down to the hot end faster, but it just did basically the same thing. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

    I have several spiderwort (transcandentia) in a variety of colors. I love the plants, however, their bloom only lasts until late afternoon, then they close up. Is there anything I can do to extend their bloom time or is this just typical of the plant? Also, can they be cut back to bring another full blooming young plant at a certain time during the summer?

  11. Connie on July 3, 2014 at 10:51 am

    Dawn, I happen to have spiderwort and I think the flowers just close up in the afternoon. I don’t know anything about pruning it to make it rebloom. However, I’m not a gardening expert. What I do when a reader asks me a question that I don’t know the answer to is to publish the question in an article and ask my readers, many of whom are Master Gardeners, to respond. If you’d like me to do that, please tell me what town you live in. Also, do you happen to have any photos of your spiderwort plants? I’d like to use one or more to illustrate the article. (I didn’t take any of mine and they’re almost done blooming.) If so, please email them to me at connie@buffaloniagaragardening.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
