Please include photos of the plants in question, and a little bit about the climate in the area of the country in which you live.

Usually, this is environmental, and dependent on the type of hydrangea.

I will include a link for the usual causes of a hydrangea not flowering, but it is specific to our climates in the US.


As far as the Nettle goes, it will be best to put on gloves and pull them by hand. Keep them pulled up before they flower and set seed, and you can be rid of them in just a few seasons.

Unfortunately, using weed killer on a sick plant may just do them in.
