The Q&A Archives: when to plant

Question: when is a safe time to plant azaleas in the mid- south. also do i need to prepare the soil since they are acid soil lovers?

Answer: Azaleas can be planted now in your region. They do love acidic soil so add some compost and peat moss to the planting bed and dig it in to a depth of about 12 inches. Plant your azaleas and after they have flowered, feed them with an acidified rhododendron/azalea food. Top dress with peat moss each spring and your azaleas should thrive. Best wishes with your garden!
