Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga. I am a professional gardener and today I am representing expertvillage.com. Selecting the site for an Azalea is very crucial. Reason number 1, sun is a major factor for this planting of the Azalea. As you are aware, they do enjoy partial sun. Planting Azaleas in direct sun, you are just going to murder them. Another thing we need to do is we need to be careful of the selection where we going to find it. This particular site that I decided to do it today is between 2 homes and it is going to continue forward in front of the house. Winds can easily destroy the Azaleas. What we want to do is keep them as close as possible to buildings, your home, any walls, any barriers that is going to protect the Azaleas and that is the reason that an Azaleas make excellent hedges. This are the two factors that you need to consider before planting your Azaleas. These are all and let’s move forward to our next step.
