Hydrangea Isn't Flowering

My hydrangea is about 15 years old. It gets huge in the summer and gets about 8 hours of sun. It had gorgeous blue blooms for the first few years. I watch and wait every season, but am sad to say there are no flowers. Please help. Thanks.

There are three possibilities for lack of flowering among the hydrangea species. The first two: "too much shade and improper pruning" apply to all hydrangeas, while the other "weather-related damage to flower buds" applies primarily to the big leaf hydrangea.

If you fertilize it too much it will also stop blooming. I learned that the hard way : )
