Hydrangeas bloom on new shoots which develop on old wood. In the spring, just as the buds begin to swell, cut the stems down to 2-3 buds (about knee high). New shoots will emerge from the buds and each of these shoots should develop flowers. You can completely remove any old, dead stems (usually gray in color).
