Caring for Azaleas That You Bought Online
The best time to plant azaleas is during the spring or fall so they have the whole growing season to establish a strong root system. Planting azaleas in spring gives them a long season to put energy into their roots and still allows foliage to grow before going dormant for winter.
Pick your planting site first and then your azalea plant, as most azaleas will grow to the area you plant them in. If your soil is lacking in pH you can add sulfate. An addition of slow release fertilizer will help with flowering each growing season.
Azaleas like well draining soil that is kept consistently moist during the growing season. Slightly acidic soil is best. Azaleas prefer to grow in full sun or partial shade. Too much sun can cause burning of the leaves. Your planting site should have both morning sun and afternoon shade.
The best time to prune azaleas is as soon as they are done flowering in the spring or early summer. The cutoff month for azalea pruning is in June because by this time they are already starting to form flower buds for next year's bloom season. Never prune your azaleas in late summer or fall as this will cut off the new flowers for next spring.
Can You Plant Azaleas in Pots?
You can plant azaleas in pots if desired. Smaller shrubs such as the Encore Azaleas will grow perfectly in containers and still provide the same beautiful flowers every year. This is a great option for gardeners without huge yard spaces that want to utilize this beautiful reblooming azalea.
