I have these great hydrangea bushes, but unfortunately they haven’t blossomed these recent years. So, this spring I’ve watered it heaps, and have added some fertiliser, and a couple of their leaves have started turning yellow, should I be worried? And do you have any advice to make hydrangeas blossom again? Thanks heaps!

feed with hydrangea food as they like the acid of that particular fertiliser. I have pasted some other help here below which covers frost and pruning so hope that helps. Hydrangea not Blooming? A late spring freeze arrives and ruins the developing bloom buds. The freeze may be light and even go unnoticed until one realises that the blooms are not forming. Or it may kill all the emerging leaves, too. As a result, most of the new growth comes from the roots (as in the picture above). When this occurs, you know you have a problem. Most flower buds develop on the old stems. Once these stems are damaged in a late freeze, new flowers will not appear until the following year and only then if it is a milder spring. (This is the rule for the vast majority of mopheads [macrophyllas] but there are exceptional hydrangeas that will bloom despite this damage) Go to Winter Protection for information on covering your hydrangea for winter protection Improper pruning. If you have pruned your hydrangea this year, or have cut right back and leaves are forming at the base only may be a reason for no blooms and next year will be ok again.
