I planted two hybisucs last summer and they look as if they are not going to bloom this year. Is there something I need to do?

Big leaf hydrangeas produce flowers on new shoots which develop on old wood. If your hydrangeas die down to the ground during the winter months, or if you prune them all the way down, there will be no old wood from which new flowering shoots can develop. They may never bloom for you! Endless Summer hydrangeas bloom on either new or old wood so even if they die down to ground level every year you will still get loads of blooms.
