Three years ago I divided an old hydrandea plant into 3 new sections. All except 1 are doing good with many flowers the 3rd one growns quite full and tall but doesn't bloom. What should I do to get the plant to bloom.

Hydrangeas bloom best when they get about 4 hours of morning sunshine so make sure yours is getting that much. Aside from pruning in the early spring to encourage lots of new growth (and potential flowers) about the only other thing you can doo to encourage flowering is to feed with a bloom booster fertilizer (low nitrogen, high phosphorus fertilizer). Hope this does the job and your hydrangea blooms for you next season!
