Pernettya is an acid-lover and must have acidic soil. In the Cobh area, the soil can be either limy or acid and you should get a test kit and ascertain which, or if the hydrangeas are blue or purple then it is acidic.

If it is limy, you will have to get some acid soil and plant into that, placing the plant a little high and mulching well with garden compost or rotted leaves.
