Hello,
I recently completed building a house in NW Arkansas. We moved in in December and thus, completed the landscaping in January. Some of my azaleas look like they are struggling a little bit. They show new growth, but are not very full, and just don't look good. The ones that look the worst are planted on the south side of the house and the north side of the house in unprotected areas. The ones planted closer to the house and on the east side look awesome. My question is there anything i can do to get the azaleas looking better? The are not dead just struggling a bit.

Thank you.

After they are done flowering is the time to fertilize them. Azaleas and Rhododendrons for example like an acidic soil. Good ole Miracid always worked well for me. 30-10-10 I think. I use to fertilize on Long Island zone 6b, the first week of August. I mixed it up in a five gallon pail at tsp. per gallon. I let it soak in around the roots. One application was enough. The end of season growing produced the buds for the following year. My front yard Rhodies and Azaleas often made traffic slow down. It took me three times the normal time to mow due to the traffic and the questions about what did I do to get them to bloom.
When they are recently planted like yours you must keep them moist. What you are seeing is most likely a reaction to the replant, they will recover!
