|Hi I have two mini Rhododendrons that I planted in the front of my farmers porch which faces the East.
There about four years old and look healthy but I only get a couple of flowers from each. I am wondering could it be due to lack of sun? There are 2 big Maples near the street that block the sun most of the day or do you think it's something else preventing it to flower?

|They need acid soil. Around a ph of 5.5 to 6.0 is what they prefer. Have you checked the soil acidity or feed them with a fertilizer for acid loving plants?
Mini Rhodies and Azaleas will bloom with hardly any sun but would prefer around four hours. If the maples are blocking the sun they should still bloom but not as well as they would without the maples.
