Top Tips

  • Can be kept in a pot (remember to use ericaceous compost) but must be fed and watered well and re-potted every couple of years.
  • Place your Azaleas in front of other evergreen such as conifers to really set off their colours.

Care Information

  • Azaleas can tolerate a more open site as long as they are sheltered from cold, drying winds and early morning sunlight.
  • Your Azalea should be planted slightly higher than it was in its pot into well-draining soil.
  • Azaleas need an acidic soil with a pH of around 5.5 in order to thrive - soils with pH higher than 5.5 should be acidified before planting or you can grow them in a container with ericaceous compost.
  • Their shallow root systems quickly capture rain, so plants need to be kept well-watered. A mulch keeps them from drying out. Therefore, mulch plants and water deeply and regularly during dryer periods from July onwards.
  • When watering, try to use rainwater as tap water tends to be too hard and more alkaline.
  • Plants benefit from a yearly feed, and our Azalea, Rhododendron and Shrub feed is the ideal formulation.
