PRUNING THE OAKLEAF HYDRANGEA: This hydrangea doesn’t require a lot of pruning but it should be trimmed at least once a year to keep it looking in good condition. Less pruning is actually better when it comes to oakleaf hydrangeas.
WHEN TO PRUNE THE OAKLEAF HYDRANGEA: You can prune your oakleaf hydrangea from LATE WINTER to EARLY SPRING, although March tends to be the best time – particularly if you are trying to rejuvenate your hydrangea.
HOW TO PRUNE YOUR OAKLEAF HYDRANGEA: You should start by removing faded flowerheads in spring after the frost. Cut back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds and take out any diseased shoots.
