Caring for Azalea - Delaware Valley
Azaleas benefit from slightly acidic soil and well draining soil with organic matter. Tilling in compost 30% to 70% original dirt and mulching well are two ways to help your azalea succeed. Raised beds are also a great option, but the soil must be kept moist and shade should always be provided for these plants.
