I have a rhodedendron in my garden ,it has been there for 3 years although there are plenty of buds it never flowers. Where am I going wrong?

    Some questions for you.

    Which variety are you growing?

    Is your soil acid? Are neighbouring gardens able to grow them?

    Are the buds you see flower buds (more rounded) or shoot buds (more pointed)? Do the buds turn brown and dry then fall off?

    Dont know the variety

    Was planted with ericaceous compost

    Not sure about the neighbours

    Buds are pointed but dont fall off just dont flower.
