If you are interested in keeping other parts of the hydrangea to grow as one or more additional bushes, remove as much dirt from the plant’s root ball as possible. The key is to expose the roots and base of the plant so you know where to make the cuts. Make sure the sides of your tree are well supported by good roots so you have a better chance of survival and success.
