The Q&A Archives: transplanting azaleas

Question: I recently transplanted 2 azalea bushes.(about 4 days ago) One looks fine but the other one has leaves that are curling in. What should I do? Thanks.

Answer: It isn't unusual for azaleas to go through a little transplant stress, especially if they are planted in the summertime. Once their roots become established, they should perk right up. There's really nothing you need to do, other than to water them deeply once each week. They'll adjust and will look just fine in a few short weeks.

Best wishes with your garden!
