Answer: Sometimes new plants take a year or two to become established before they decide to grow and bloom as expected. If your hydrangea is less than 3 years old, not producing blooms isn't unusual. Hydrangeas bloom on old wood, so be careful not to prune it down, or you'll prune off all the flower buds. If you've fertilized the plant in the last year, hold off on additional applications of fertilizer this year - excess nitrogen can prompt the shrub to put on lots of new leaves, at the expense of flowers. Just exercise some patience - your shrubs will bloom eventually.
