Azalea leaves turning brown

Hi all , just wondering if anyone could advise on what could possible be the problem with this Azalea. It’s leaves are starting to go brown and die but just seems to be suffering this at one side of the shrub .  It is in a pot and has plenty of room to grow and been fed with a liquid feed .  Thank in advance .

    They do best in acid soil, so if you don't have that in your area, the best thing to do is pot them in ericaceous compost which your garden centre will have, or would have had before the government  made it illegal.

    They are woodland plants in their normal habitat, they suffer from both wind and sunburn, prefer somewhere a bit shadey

    Just like to add that they also need rainwater not tap water. Was the feed you gave it one made for azaleas/rhododendrons?
