Editorial Reviews


"...You must check out "Success with Hydrangeas" which is a gem!..." Stephanie Cohen, Award Winning Author and Speaker, December 2017.
"...This book is EXACTLY what gardeners need. Lorraine has organized the very complex world of hydrangeas. Her detailed, well-researched, and easy-to-understand explanation of how the many species of hydrangeas set up buds and flowers taught me SO much...." Nancy DuBrule-Clemente, award winning horticulturist, garden writer, speaker, and owner of Natureworks.

..."Success with Hydrangeas, A Gardener's Guide"(B&B Publishing) is simply great. It covers every imaginable aspect of hydrangea growing, has wonderful pictures covering the four seasons and Lorraine even gets into the current breeding frenzy in hydrangea-land and makes a little more sense of it. The book is well indexed, making its use as a resource very easy..." Andrew Messinger, Hampton Gardener, June 2018.

"...Among the hydrangea books out recently is this one by horticulturist/garden writer/instructor Lorraine Ballato. Hers is a highly organized 13-chapter book to help you make sense of the increasing choices and understand what the plants need to thrive. The book's easy going style makes all the material understandable. The nearly 150 color photos are helpful because they show hydrangeas up close, as well as in varied settings. Alot of explanation is devoted to pruning. Whether your plant blooms on old wood, new wood, or both plays a large role in what and when to prune to have flowers at all. That's one good reason to understand as much as possible about the characteristics of your particular hydrangea."  Washington Gardener, one of the top 10 garden books of 2018.

"...The book every hydrangea lover should have...(It) answers the questions everybody asks: When to prune? Why won't it bloom? Should I fertilize? How to transplant? How to protect from wildlife? If you've ever wondered about any of these issues, the information is here and it's easy to find..." Elizabeth Licata, Editor, Buffalo Spree, May 2018.

"...Success withHydrangeas is packed with colorful pictures and great information. The book isincredibly comprehensive, including a chapter on diseases and pests common toHydrangeas, as well as how to treat them. Success with Hydrangeas is an easy toread and understand resource for growing gorgeous Hydrangeas."  KerryAnn Mendez; award-winning speaker, author, consultant and garden designer andowner of Perennially Yours, LLC.  pyours.com

"...Success With Hydrangeas by Lorraine Ballato is by far THE necessary tool required for anyone who loves Hydrangeas...Lorraine Ballato...really knows her stuff!" Teri Speight, Cottage in the Court, April 2018.

From the Author

I wrote this best selling book after working in a garden center for a few years and noting how confused gardeners were about this fabulous plant. My live audiences displayed the same issues. Enter Success With Hydrangeas. It's a one-stop shop intended to clear the fog and give you the info you need to make your plants thrive and bring you joy. 
But every season is different and can't be captured in one book. So I also write a blog dedicated only to hydrangeas for more timely info. It's an easy sign-up from my website (LorraineBallato.com) and you can cancel at any time.
My classes and lectures are where you can get further insights into growing this shrub, especially as the landscape (pun intended) keeps changing. Go to the "calendar" tab on my site (LorraineBallato.com/calendar) to see where and when I'll be speaking. I hope to meet you!
