I live about seventy miles north of Atlanta. I transplanted two hydrangeas in the spring. They both have grown to about 3 feet tall, but had no blooms.

Should I prune them back or should I leave them as is and prune them in the spring?

I'd leave them alone for now. In the spring you can prune them back to about knee high and they will develop new sprouts on the old stems. These new stems will flower for you next summer. Hydrangeas flower best when they get about 4 hours of morning sun and then filtered shade through the hot afternoons. Enjoy your hydrangeas!
