|I have several older azealea bushes in my flowerbeds that are looking thin and spindley.|
I dont want to cut the bush back, is there a way to encourage newer growth at the bottom without cutting it back?

|You can try pinching out the growing tips of each stem to force new growth, but the real remedy for legginess in shrubs is to prune them back a bit. This encourages new growth both behind the pruning cut and in front of the cut.|
