    You might try diluting a tablespoon of Epson Salt in a gallon of water. Sprinkle it on the soil at the bottom of the plant. Then water again. The extra water will help the root system to receive the Epson Salt. This process is actually putting enzymes in to the soil and may help your hydrangea to bloom.

    Hydrangeas need calcium and potassium among other minerals like magnesium and manganese etc. I mix egg shells, banana peelings and coffee grounds in the food processor with a little water and pour it over the hydrangeas. Do not ever put mulch like grass clippings on it. They do not like Nitrogen which is abundant in most fertilizers. Give them mulch in winter to winter over. When they do bloom, as soon as the blooms are done, be sure to cut them back right away. They are kinda opposite most plants in their likes, huh. Hope this helps.

    Hydrangeas like acid soil. Try a soil acidifier, such as Holly Tone. Just spread on ground around the plant, in the amount specified on the package.
