Niko blue

Hey all,
New to the board and have done some searching but haven't
seen anything from my area.
We planted 2 Nikko Blue's and 2 Snow Ball's 4 years ago.
The first 2 years they were beautiful. Not this year though.
I cut them down to 18" in the fall, as instructed by the nursery and do not cover them at all. I added Aluminum Sulfate to make them blue.
This year they are beautifully green but no flowers on the Nikko Blues. Plenty on the Snow balls.
I hope someone from my area can tell me what I'm doing wrong and give me some instructions on how to help my flowers.
Thanks so much.

Never prune mopheads or lace caps in the fall. You will cut next years blooms off if you do.
