Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga and I am a professional gardener. I am here today on behalf of expertvillage.com. We are basically going to talk about the maintenance of your shrubs. As you can see, we planted a whole row and the first step to maintain a healthy Azalea is any size of any yellow leaves, perhaps they are lacking in acid, so be sure to add your coffee grinds regularly or your acid that you purchase at the store. Another cause could be checking the mulch. Remember mulch tends just to wash off every time you water the plant so perhaps you are not maintaining that moisture that we need or perhaps we got too much moisture. Just kind of even it out and don’t forget in the winter we do not water them as often as we would in the summer. Another thing once the hedge starts growing, it is going to take a while, be sure to keep them straight in a line. That will create your wall between your home and your neighbors. Thank you very much and this includes our step by step on how to maintain our shrubbery for the Azaleas.
