When Do You Fertilize Azaleas in Alabama?
Alabama gardeners should fertilize their azaleas with a full-strength application of fertilizer in March and a half-strength application in June. Use a fertilizer blend specialized for azaleas applying at the package’s recommended rate. Use caution not to over-fertilize, as azaleas have shallow roots, which are easily damaged and can lead to leaf drop or death.
