    Hi pat and welcome to the GardenStew forums :wave:

    Hmm... it sounds like it is a pruning issue that is stopping the hydrangea from blooming. Was last year the first time you cut it back?

    I found this page http://www.hydrangeashydrangeas.com/pruning.html a good resourse on pruning hydrangeas. Have a look at it and it may become apparent that maybe you cut them back incorrectly.

    Have you had a cold spring? A late spring freeze may have damaged the developing blooms as well.

    Please let us know how you get on. Good luck.
