OMG, I needed this! My dad passed away suddenly 18 months ago. Work was awful, my supervisor (who had a red X on my head) told no one except HR, who sent a plant on behalf of the office. The plant happened to be a hyrid blue hydrangea - the only plant I'd have actually purchased for myself except they were too darned expensive. The cold funeral was hard on it. I brought it home and planted it per the nursery's instructions, and it promptly died. I just went outside to wander around and lo and behold there are 3 little hydrangea leaves sticking out of the ground where I planted that thing! Could it be my dad showing up when I really need him to??? I've never gotten a "sign" from dad. Anyway, I do not have a green thumb. At all. I want to nurture this thing along - what can I do to help it???
