    Any buds?

    Has it been pruned recently?

    Never pruned to my knowledge but we're new here I'm nervous about repotting it cos it is heavy & well up the wall.

    In a pot???

    I assume then its struggling for water and food, therefore not making any buds

    I bought a climbing hydrangea this year and planted it straight into the ground, already has buds bursting into flower now! So id recommend trying to plant it into the ground, or if that's not realistically possible then give it a weekly feed and see how it reacts to that.

    It won't be happy in a pot - it has to be in the ground. It's a plant which readily covers large walls so the roots need plenty of room. Give it the conditions it requires and it'll reward you in spades, otherwise it will always disappoint. 

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
