i cut my hydrangea last year because it was to big it hasnt flowered this year, bit is very large will the flowers come back



Probably. You will have cut off all the flower forming shoots last year, so I assume the new growth this year will give you flowers.

If its a mophead or lacecap type Hydrangea, these shouldn't be pruned until April, when growth first begins, and even then, only a light pruning involving removing spent flowerheads and stems and any dead parts. You can, though, cut down a third of the stems - these will not flower the same year as a result, but the rest of the shrub will.
