have you fed it? If not, feed it and keep it watered but not waterlogged.

Azaleas set their flowers immediately after flowering. If by any chance you pruned it you will have cut off the following year's flowers. I would also recommend a good feed also.

Starting too look like mine and my dads. We have very heavy clay soil and the azaleas prefer a well drained acidic soil.

They need a good feed every now and then and if you have a very alkaline or neutral soil make sure it's an acidic feed.

Mine look much happier this year with all the extra rain too!
