no blooming after transplant
Last fall (1 year ago), I transplanted 3 hydrangeas to a spot where they'll get a little more sun. they had been under a large tree for a couple years getting almost no sun; they would get a few blooms, but were fairly stunted in growth. Well, they leafed/greened out beautifully, bigger than they've been in the couple years I've had them under that tree. I'll say they're like 2-3 ft. in diameter.
I kept waiting for blooms....and waiting...and they never came. :-( I fertilized with cottonseed meal in early summer.
