Why Aren't My Hydrangeas Blooming?
We planted 3 hydrangeas last summer which were in flower at the time. They are on a west facing side of my property, however, there is a large line of ash trees giving quite a bit of shade, so they are never in direct sun. We thought the spot would be good for them. They are healthy as can be, very lush good looking foliage but not a darn bloom on any of them.
We have another one, on an island of our front lawn, facing mostly north. This one does great, they get pretty much the same amount of sun and shade. Both, are in shade a good portion of the day.
Any ideas why these are not blooming? Also, our Pee Gee seems to be suffering this year too, although the high heat these past two weeks here in NJ haven't helped, and we're wondering of cicadas are feeding on it (for some reason, we saw none last year which was supposed to be the Brood X infestation but this year, we've seen dozens and dozens in our yard - may be stragglers from last year?).
