@BG_garden Bren, it took my climbing hydrangrea 9 years before I saw a bloom. Today it climbs a tree in my garden and is covered in blooms.

At The Garden Center
I love the customer service you will get at most garden centers. Today I visited The Andersons and the gentleman was so kind to help me find two options for my Hydrangea dilemma.
Organically you could use the product below that has 9% Phosphorus . They also had a Miracle Gro Bloom Boost which had 3x’s more phosphorus in it.
One very important point the garden center worker had was that you need to remember that most of the climbing hydrengeas bloom on the old wood so be sure NOT to prune the shrub until after it blooms in summer.
I’d love to hear from you … do you have a tip or idea for me before I add my phosphorus to the climbing hydrangea?
