I bought a root bound hydrangea(sp?) but there were new leaves at the bottom. The three heads are dying. Should I snip the heads off to give more nutrients to the plant?

I have nearly the same situation. I got a free hydrangea from craigslist three years ago, I
had to dig it up so the roots were disturbed. It hadn't done a thing so last week I decided shoot the moon and cut it all back to see if anything might happen. It has all new green growth on it now, don't know if it will flower but it looks better then it did with a bunch of dead sticks all over it. Good luck to us hydrangea lovers!
What did I do wrong this time? I usually have no problem starting seeds, but my toato seedlings have all lost their bottom leaves and it looks like they may die altogether. There is all
different varieties, they all look sick. I have them in jiffy pots, and have noticed mold growing on the outside of the pots but also right on the top of the soil. I have had them under lights, never missed watering, and they have been warm. Can they be saved or have I lost the fight? They have not been overwatered either, at least I don't think so.

They all died so off to the farmers market I go...in a few weeks that is.
I LOVE this idea for my garden! Did you know that you can grow another complete celery
stalk from the bottom piece that you cut off and throw away? Cut off the end that you would normally "throw away" and then place it in a small dish filled with warm water.
Next "pot" the celery stalk (Stalk Side Up) or place in your garden. Just dig a small hole, fill it with water and set the end in the hole, then cover it up with an inch or so of soil. Water thoroughly. That is it! Now the "end" will grow into a full stalk of celery! Rinse and Repeat and you never have to buy celery again! Talk about a way to save money! This photo is taken on day 7 and as you can see it is working!

Put it water first, then after it takes root plant it in a pot. Should be good to go!
