Fall presents a wonderful time of year to plant those azaleas you’ve been longing for in your landscape or plant garden.
Azaleas begin their budding process in the cooler winter months and those buds become breathtaking blooms beginning in March.
You will be one step ahead of the mad dash to purchase and plant your azaleas in the spring by planting them now. Azaleas are the perfect answer for a spectacular punch of color in any landscape!
Azaleas grow well under trees in shaded and filtered light areas. Soil conditions must be well drained and acidic. If soil is low on nitrogen, then fall and spring fertilization is a must. Azaleas also benefit from mulching, pine straw and/or compost as it aids in keeping the weeds down and provides nutrients as well.
