To all you proud azalea owners, do not trim your plants late in the fall.
Your azaleas may have some long runners on them and you may be tempted to trim them back, but beware you may be trimming off potential buds that will develop into beautiful blooms this spring. Be patient and trim them after they have gone through their bloom stage.
Also, for those of you considering planting azaleas in time for the spring blossoms, November December is the perfect time to plant them. Azaleas are cold hardy and their bloom is breathtaking and hard to beat come spring time!
