    The Outdoor Gardening Thread

    There used to be an active gardening thread around here, but I couldn't find it in any of my searches.

    So, I have a question. I have a hydrangea outside, and it regularly comes back each year, but I'm not quite sure what to do about the little dead brown "nubs" on the stalks that were where old shoots grew; do I shave them off, or do I leave them there? Any experienced or knowledgeable folks have any thoughts?

    I don't plant hydrangeas, but I'm not sure what to do with those 'nubs', Mer-Man's Minion.
    Let's ask anyone who grows hydrangeas outside their homes.

    You want to leave them alone. The only thing you want to remove is the old faded and dried flowers after the last frost in spring. And you don't even really have to remove them.
