It is only this year that I have one nice bud, but it dosen't look as though it is going to open. Should I give it a helping hand?

You may be lacking phosphorus in the soil, which is necessary for blooming. Give the plants some phosphorus-rich fertilizer or add some bone meal to the soil around them and this should improve the flowering.
