Climbing Hydrangea Does Not Bloom Or Produce Buds

Question From: G. Kain - Greenville, South Carolina, United States
Q: My climbing hydrangea is 12 years old, very well-established on a north-facing brick wall, and very healthy and robust. But it has never once bloomed or even produced buds. What can i change to encourage blooms?

A: Lack of sun and too much nitrogen fertilizer and the most common reasons plants refuse to bloom. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
