HELP Non flowering Hydrangea

Dave MorganDave Morgan Posts: 3,122

Okay I have a hydrangea in a clients garden, a mophead, which has been pruned correctly, and sits in a bed with two other hydrangeas both mop heads, and planted in clay and the bed is mulched with bark. This one hydrangea will just not flower. The other two do, prolifically, but this one just will not produce a flower head and hasn't for the past few years. They don't get fed normally but this year I fed the non flowering one some tomato feed for several weeks. It's really healthy but no flowers. The client doesn't mind , but I do. Has anyone got any suggestions?

    I'll give anything a try Verdun, and Dove it's been read the riot act more than once and shown the secateurs in my most menacing fashion, not that that's any thing to be scared off, and there's so much s**t at the farm next door going begging it'll get heavy mulch next week. If none of those work, then it's on the death list.

    I agree with Verdun about the potash. I'd also check that the flower buds aren't forming but then getting frosted, e.g. by having the dead heads taken off too soon, and that no-one is pruning at the wrong time.
