Azaleas are particular about the soil you plant them in. Preferring light well-draining and rich acidic soils. For best results, prepare your soil well before planting by adding lots of humus-rich compost and ericaceous fertiliser granules. The brown discarded needles from conifers and pines make a great acidic topdressing for your soil as well.
