buds not opening

I need some advice. Should I fertilize with something? I have 5 bushes that have not opened their buds yet and it is getting cold. They have buds but they don't seem to be doing anything. Your advice please.

At this stage in the game what do you have to loose. We have people on the list that have been doing this at a larger scale than me so if they fell differently by all means take their advive.

RE: buds not opening

Maybe they're just slow bloomers PD, or have you had them before and had them bloom before now? Try some Miracle Grow. I've got a few no-shows yet, so those better get blooming or they'll get out of my garden.

RE: buds not opening

It was 48 degrees last night. I need the steamy heat we had two weeks ago. Yes Pooch I have had some of them before. Show and Tell used to be the first one to open. Some of the buds have leaves on one side and the other side of the bud is smooth? Just need it to get hot again.
