Newsletter for March 2017

Dear Hydrangeas Enthusiasts,



We are a family owned and operated nursery in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon.  We pride ourselves on offering a fantastic selection of garden-type hydrangeas in multiple sizes for every budget.   We offer only those hydrangeas that meet our tough standards.  With the EXPLOSION of new varieties, we test all the varieties we can and pick only those that meet the hype. 

Transplanting!  Now is the time to think about moving those hydrangeas that didn't get enough sun or got too much sun last summer.  When a hydrangea is dormant (or mostly dormant), it is a great time to move these shallow rooted plants.  The root system of most hydrangeas is very shallow but can be as wide as the plant.  Try to get as many of these lateral roots as possible.  Paniculata and the climbing hydrangeas can have much deeper root systems, much like a shade tree.  Be sure to get as many of those deeper roots as possible. 

What’s happening at Hydrangeas Plus ®

New varieties!  Yes, we finally have our new varieties for the year.  Please visit our website and check them out.
Some are only available on a limited basis!

Hydrangeas are taking off with beautiful growth.  Another mild winter (only after 7 school days off due to snow, ice and freezing fog) for us here so we're hitting the ground running.  Hydrangeas are waking up and all are ready for their new homes.  Order now and ship now or later!   I'm short on a few varieties so the earlier you order, the better chances those #1 choices will still be available.

Open dates this month

Our official first retail event of the year is coming up this month.  The annual Spring Break sale will be March 24th & 25th here at the nursery.  Hours will be 10am to 4pm both days.  Come buy those hydrangeas on your plant list even before the local nurseries have them in stock.

At the Spring Break sale on Saturday, March 25th, I have again invited several specialty nurseries to come sell with me.  Joining me are Sebright Gardens, Out in the Garden Nursery and Gossler Farms Nursery.  They will be here from 10am to 3pm on March 25th!  Here is a little information about them.

Sebright Gardens carries several hundreds of varieties of shade loving plants – not limited to hosta, fern, and epimedium. Come see a preview of their 2017 offerings of fabulous plants before they open for the season. Sebright Gardens is also a mail order nursery so visit their website at

Out in the Garden Nursery is a specialty nursery with hundreds of varieties of plants, grasses and perennials.  Carol will be here with her wonderful 2017 selections and ready to answer any questions you may have.  Her nursery will open in April so don't miss the opportunity to visit her gardens and many of the fuzzy/feathery children.  Please visit her website for more information at

Gossler Farms Nursery is a fantastic shrub and tree nursery that specializes in maples, dogwoods, HYDRANGEAS, magnolias, rhododendrons, viburnums and witchhazels.
Authors of The Gossler Guide to the Best Hardy Shrubs, the family is a wealth of information.  If you haven't visited their website (and gotten excited about all the unusual viburnums!), please do so. The Gosslers ship all over the country if you're looking for that special shrub.
