I've had a habiscus bush for 10 or more years, for the past 5 it has had plenty buds but they have not bloomed. This year it looks healthier than before, the leaves are really green & there is a abundance of buds but still not flowering. You advice would be appreciated please

There are a number of tiny insects that can ruin buds. You will need to be a real sleuth to pin down which one may be causing buds not to open. Here is an article that runs down the possibilities. Click on each insect for more information on that pest, how to ID it and treat it.
