Azaleas - should they be pruned immediately after flowering, or later? I can't remember ever pruning them in the past!



Hi Sheila. If you do an internet search for 'pruning azaleas', you'll find all the info you need.

Sheila, yes the best time to prune azalea is immediately after flowering before it starts setting flower buds for next year. I use July 4th as the deadline - and easy date to remember.
