I am delighted with the growth that my Azaleaa have put on. In fact I am delighted that I can grow them at all; My previous garden was in the chalky Chiltern hills, so being able to grow them is a new experience...

The question is - Should they be pruned?

If so, how much and when?




I've only ever tidied mine up after flowering, perhaps to shape the bush. I then water and feed well to encourage growth for the next year's flower

Ah, thanks for that. I was hoping it was the case that I could let them be.

I've never pruned my azaleas except to cut back any overly long shoot that spoils the symetry of the bush

How do I say thanks?
