Hydrangea Isn't Flowering

Category Advice

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.

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