How do you make hydrangeas bloom? I have beautiful lush bushes with no blooms. I do not cut them down at the end of the season.

Sometimes if you get a frost after the buds have already formed, it can affect the blooms. What type of hydrangea do you have? A mophead? If you grow the new ones that are out like, Endless Summer to name one, they bloom on both old and new wood so you have a better chance of them blooming. Also a paniculata will bloom every time. I have two paniculata hudgrangeas called "Limelight" and they will always bloom because they are more cold tolerant. (09/17/2009)
