    A great resource that I have used and highly recommend .....is your local Cooperative extension. These offices are manned by a wonderful team of master gardeners that know your local situation quite well. There's also email ( submit a photo) Q&A resources that have helped my concerns and questions many times. Consider googling up your local extensions office.

      Great, I will do that. Unfortunately, it's the only azalea plant that has not yet bloomed.

      Thank you for that information. I added Miracle Grow Garden soil, but I'm not sure if it's acidic soil. I will be sure to add acidic soil or acidic plant food.
