A popular flowering shrub, Azaleas come in a range of colours from pale pink through to orange, red and purple.  Perfect for growing in a shady bed or woodland garden although they can cope with full sun too.  Azaleas also do very well in patio pots and containers but remember to use an ericaceous compost.

All azaleas require a moist, well-drained, humus-rich neutral to acidic soil, use a soil testing kit to check the PH of your soil if you’re at all unsure.  Mulch annually with leaf mould or conifer bark chippings.  For pot grown azaleas top dress each spring or completely re-pot and feed weekly with an ericaceous fertiliser.
