To plant your Azalea, dig the hole twice as wide and as deep as the container. Remove plant from the container and place into the hole so that the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Plant in free draining, humus rich soil. Azaleas prefer acidic soil, so do not apply lime. Cultivate soil prior to planting.
Keep soil moist and water well during extended dry periods. Mulch to retain moisture.
Prune this plant after flowering to increase flowering.
