i took cuttings of hydrangeas which are all about 9inches now some are trying to flower. 

Do I take the flower heads off so that they bush out or just leave to grow

    I would take off the flowers & let the plants establish more.

    I agree with Ian ... you want a nice busy shrub so take the flowers off ... equivalent to pinching out.
