Good morning!
I have a perennial garden with a few hydrangeas mixed in. My other flowers are doing fine, but some of the leaves (okay lots of the leaves) on my hydrangeas are curled up and brown at the ends; almost like I lit a match to them. The bushes are still flowering. Is this possibly the work of a leaf miner? Thanks. I'm relatively new to gardening!

Hi Leah,
That doesn't sound like a miner to me. Leaves with leaf miners in my garden (on other plants) stay pretty healthy looking, except for the tunnels. I am not that familiar with hydrangeas.
You could try one of the Beginner forums for more help, or if you are a subscriber, one of the specific forums, like Trees and Shrubs. I'm guesssing a fungus, or a root problem, but again, I can't say with confidence. A picture of the leaves will help tell what's wrong.
Glad you other flowers seem fine. Thanks for reading, and happy gardening!

My guess would be your plant may not be receiving enough water. Due to a lack of water or root contstriction/damage. There are many other reasons, but I find that to be the main reason why my plants tips turn brown.
