rhododendron problem

United Kingdom Gb

I have a "Bow Bells" Rhododendron in a conatainer and it never flowred in April as it should of although the buds were there, now all it's leaves are curling over and it looks really sick - can anyone help please? I'm pretty sure I planted it up in ericaceous soil but would this cause it to do this if I didn't, and could I replant it now or would I have to wait until the spril?



i had a camelia that was behaving the same way. It had buds but they didn't flower then just fell off. I've fed it with liquid seaweed feed but a specialist one for camelias and such like. This would be suitable for your problem. My leaves have now gone green again, hoping for flowers next year!
