any thoughts why our azalea is not showing any buds? we have had it 2 years and has not budded once. it is in a east facing border and although the border is clay it was planted in ericaceous soil and is fed and top dressed twice a year.

we treat it the same as the rhoddie, at that has a mass of buds.

it was in flower when we bought it. the labels on them say May flowering, just feel its leaving it late to show flowers

Sounds like the poor things are suffering from heat exhaustion and are to tired to get away. They like the warm, so want to come back in, but they don't realize it's to hot for them. I believe beekeepers take the lids off the hives if in full sun to try and cool them down. To stop them coming in, put up over the door those fly screens

Hi Polly, as a HS&E rep for my work, please do not use a heater of any description in plastic GH. Try and locate it on a south or west wall. The sun heats up the wall and radiates it back to the GH.
