Dear Hydrangea enthusiasts,
Welcome to the November 2011 newsletter for Hydrangea
Brrr, heat is coming on in the office a bit earlier than usual.
But the sun is still shining and I’m happy with the warmth of the
heating vent right under my desk.
Halloween eve is already a blur as we start sliding into the holiday
season. November brings colder temperatures and sleepy hydrangeas
as they begin to lose their leaves and slide into dormancy.
Arborescens Annabelle is already shedding with style. One day,
leaves changing to glorious yellow and today, nothing but the
stems. A few frosty nights will do that to Ms. Annabelle.
I was out in the nursery today and took some fabulous fall
photos. The rain usually keeps us inside but inside of our poly
covered cold frames, it’s a bit warmer and definitely drier in there.
Brunette (Merville Sanguine) is putting on a show for us with those
purple leaves. I’m not kidding, really purple.
Visit our Facebook page at to http://www.facebook.com/hydrangeasplus
or just search for Hydrangeas Plus from your Facebook program. I
post specials and photos so visit often.

New look for our website
It took a bit of work but I’m finished. You’ll notice that we no
longer have categories for 1-year, 2-year and 3-year plants. Now,
we have just one product but with the option for selecting the size
from the product page. The 3-year size may be the default but we
almost have every variety completely back in stock with every variety
so take a look.
If by chance the size you’d like is not in stock, please let me
know. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email you when the cultivar and size you’d like is back in
If you haven’t visited our website for a while, check out the new lower
shipping rates to the eastern side of the US. Now it’s more
economical than ever to order hydrangeas from us.
