I have a hydrangea bush that is about 10 years old. It was transplanted 5 years ago. It got flowers before I moved it. I did not cut it back last winter. Why am I not getting flowers on it now?

Can you use play sand to break up clay in a vegetable garden?

Hydrangeas need about 4 hours of morning sunshine in order to bloom well. If you moved it to a shadier spot than it was before, that might account for the non blooming. Builder's sand is a better product for your veggie garden. If the play sand is very fine it will simply disappear in the soil.
