Are you using fertilizer on your azalea plants? If so, they may be getting too much nitrogen and not enough phosphorus. Nitrogen makes healthy green plants, but too much blocks blooming. Use a fertilizer higher in phosphorus or even a phosphorus only amendment, like bone meal, to get them to bloom.
