encouragement for azaleas

we have a small, shady garden. how can I encourage our azaleas to grow up rather than out?

    You could turn it into a standard, I had one given to me on Mothers Day and it is still full of flowers. Guess you would need to find a central stem, bit like doing fuchsias.

    The azaleas I look after are growing but no flowers new growth on them but can't see any flower buds.......put slow release eracious feed down last week so hopefully with the weather warming they will flower soon.
