My hydrangea did not flower this summer. I had cut it back last fall. The leaves came back but no blossoms.

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.
