Q.Hydrangea Tree Did Not Bloom

Anonymous added on August 16, 2012 | Answered

I have a hydrangea tree in front of my house that had set many flower buds but it looked like they only turned to seed, if that makes sense. Very few actually opened into the pretty white flowers that I have seen on other Hydrangea trees. Can you help me with a solution so next year we get nice blooms on our tree? What could have caused this? Again, the shoots set flower buds but did not produce a flower.

You may be lacking phosphorus. If there is a lack of phosphorus in the soil, plants will have little to no blooms. You can either use a phosphorus rich fertilizer or add some bone meal to the soil.
