The hydrangeas are the regular pom poms and purple lilac bushes. They both bloomed last year and I did not prune them last year or this year.
My Husband says he did not touch them. (He did this before and I found out he pruned when we weren't suppose, too. He has been from the cutters.) Please help

Rather than blame your husband, consider that the non-blooming might be a result of a late cold snap (that harmed the flower buds) or a drought last summer while the flower buds were developing. I suspect your plants will bloom next year, as long as they are not pruned!

Best wishes with your garden!
