I have a beautiful Hydrangea about 10 years old, has grown a lot.Should I prun it?, or what can I do to help it grow better for next year.

Hydrangeas are typically pruned in the spring, just when the buds on the stems begin to swell. You can prune yours down by about a third without shocking it too much. Since hydranges develop flowers on the new growth of the season you should get lots and lots of flowers next year. Enjoy!
