Green Thumb Guide

Plant azaleas in late winter, early spring, or in fall. Performs best in enriched, well draining, acidic soil. Feed with azalea fertilizer in spring. Keep roots cool with a layer of mulch. In spring, prune back after bloom to control height. Pruning or pinching back young azalea plants helps to promote bushy growth.

These characteristics apply to the greater Sacramento area and nearby regions.
