The Q&A Archives: Shrubs not blooming

Question: Mt azaleas plants are two years old and have produced blooms you can count on one hand. Why are the plants not blooming. The plants appear to be healthy.

Answer: Azaleas will bloom more prolifically as they mature. Since they bloom on the ends of the branches you can encourage more branches and therefore more blooms by pruning them back after they have finished blooming each year. This will promote a nice dense growth habit and lots of flowering branches. Best wishes with your azaleas!
