I got 2 Rhododendrons from my Mom-in-law 2 years ago and they bloomed beautifully the first year. The second year they stayed green, no blooms. I'm guessing I overfertilized them according to my research. Will they bloom again? Or has the overfertilizing damaged them permanently? They have lots of green buds on them right now, (year 3) so they are very alive, but no flower buds. Might be a bit too early. They were about 3 feet high when I got them from her. She had them behind a fence and they were tall and gangly looking, as if they were reaching for the sun. My next question is... Both the Rhodos are very leggy looking and need a huge pruning because they are getting too tall. There are only leaves covering the top portion of the plants, not the sides or middle at all, so I'm wondering if I can cut them right at the bottom, maybe 6 inches from the ground and have them start a whole new growth for next year? I realize they can't be pruned till June or July, but the main branch is about 3 inches thick in diameter, so it would be a little stumpy looking for a while, but I'm wondering if new growth will still come from that? Thanx!
