Hi Arthur,bit difficult to say without knowing how and what feed your using and how much watering, if all that is good, then perhaps a fresh compost and some slow release fertilizer will do the trick,iv got hydrangea in full sun, shade, and part shade so in truth  i cant really say they have to have any particular spot in the garden, if you do change the compost i would restart them in partial shade for a while , and it would be interesting to see if any baddies are there,iv just changed 2 pots which had vine weevil they decimated the plants. good luck 

can you id this please
