Hydrangeas With Buds But No Blooms?

My hydrangeas have budded but not bloomed. I live in New England and have four seasons. Fall will be within the next 4-6 weeks. Will they bloom if they are budding? They bloomed once already this year.

You may have the type of hydrangeas that bloom on old growth (early summer) and again on new growth (late summer/early fall) so be patient and they should bloom before the first frost.
From a hydrangea grower:
New repeat-blooming hydrangeas overcome this problem by flowering on both old stems and new growth. With these hydrangea shrubs, even if you prune in early spring, youll still get some flowers on the new stems that form. For the strongest flower show, though, you should leave as many stems as possible, both old and new.

I use coffee grounds (not too many too often) and used tea bags and they bloom nicely every year.

Here is an excellent link to instructions on how to care for your hydrangeas.

When your hydrangea wont bloom, it is because of the species of hydrangea you have planted. Some of them grow flowers off of new wood and some of them will grow flowers off of old wood.You need to find out what variety you have.Hydrangea macrophilia get blue or pink flowers on them. However, they produce a lot of cultivars and these cultivars can die back to the base of the ground in the winter, particularly if you have had a colder than normal winter.

If the old wood dies back to the ground, your hydrangea wont bloom when it grows back the following year.This is because its growing new wood and the new wood doesnt produce flowers on this particular variety.Another problem when your hydrangea wont flower is that you may have pruned it the year before too far back.

Too much nitrogen or a lack of phosphorus in the soil could be the reason.You may need soil rich with phosphorus fertilizer.

It depends on the weather. If it gets cold before they can get a chance to bloom they won't.

You need to be patient and wait for them to bloom. Here on the islands the hydrangeas bloom at different times of the year. I have one variety that seems to bloom all year round.

Another one only blooms twice a year. I think you are fine and in a few weeks should see your flowers.
