Hello. This is a pretty broad question! Did you perhaps prune in the fall?

No none of them were pruned. I saw 2 blooms on the forsythia, several on the rhododendrons that never opened. Could it have been because it turned very cold and snowed at that time? They all have very healthy leaves now.

If the plants are healthy then I also suspect a weather event was responsible for the lack of blooms.
