What should I do to prepare my azaleas for winter?


Answer by  secondbanana (289)

Azaleas are susceptible to wind and ice damage on the tips of their branches, you should cover young plants with burlap, remembering to tie the burlap securely, and mulch with roots with straw. This should not be necessary after the bushes are older or if they are in a sheltered area.

Do not fertilize your azaleas after mid-summer, or you will stimulate new tender growth that will be damaged by the cold. Do not give your azaleas excessive water in the fall. Mulch around the azaleas with pine straw or leaves to protect their roots. Azaleas may need to be covered with a blanket or other cover during really hard freezes.

Follow these three steps to prepare a azalea for the winter. First spray anti-transpirant. Secondly cover the root area with burlap or screen. Finally add mulch to the root areas.
