Pruning hydrangea

It’s a good time to prune your hydrangea. You will see the tiny shoots appearing in spring, and you can now dead head, remove dead wood, and tame any climbing varieties.

I’ve made a cut and will take this heavier branch down once it has dried up a
little to avoid damaging the neighbouring roof.
Branches have become overgrown and tangled, blocking the light.
Before; this hydrangea has grown into a neighbouring roof and will soon become unmanageable.
Afterwards; clear of the encroaching branches.
All removed with secateurs, and will feel lighter, with more room for the apple tree to thrive.
Three cut method ensures no jagged edges.
