How to Grow Azaleas
- Provide well-drained, humus-rich soil that is slightly acidic (pH 4.5–6).
- Mulch well. Shallow-rooted, azaleas tend to dry out quickly if not mulched.
- Fertilizer isn’t needed.
- Seldom bothered by insects and diseases, azaleas require little care once established, except for watering during dry times.
