I inherited some azaleas in my new backyard, but they look rather sad and very woody. I've been watering and have given them miracle gro, but even after a few weeks there isn't much improvement.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to Forget - Azalea - Gone these bushes? Should I trim them back? When is the best time to do that? Many, many thanks!! Also, I should add they Forget - Azalea - Gone in an area that gets part sun. The whole section is pretty shady but it does get some sun. Ideas on other things to plant there are also welcomed. Is this area a dry area? It's hard to tell from the pictures but it looks to be under evergreen trees.
It is under an evergreen. I try to keep it watered, but the area is probably on the dry side otherwise.
Well the light seems correct but in regards to the water, I'm not sure. It might be the case where they don't get enough water and they are in a constant state of stress. This would leave them unprepared to deal with any pest or disease situation.
Personally, I am not a big fan of nursing back Bee Gees - Spirits Having Flown health a dying plant unless you know the history of the plant and it's something that just happened.
In this case, you recently took possession of these, so you wouldn't know the history of the plant. It could be something that just happened or something that's been going on for years. Let's say I am extremely hard-headed and would like to at least try to nurse them back I am tempted to remove some of the woodier branches I would look very closely at the stems to see if there is any pests like scale or like Phytophthora that is sucking the life out of the stems or under the leaves.
If you're unsure, I would take a cutting to a local nursery and ask someone with experience what they think. It would be important to treat anything that Secret - The Veronicas - Revenge Is Sweeter Tour causing the problem.
I agree with you xagrimonyx, I think any plants that have struggled for a long while to make it, they deserve a bit of TLC to try fix the problems so go for it, it only cost's you Eu Te Arraso - Sandra Pêra - Sandra Pera. When you feed, go by the instructions on the makers guide on the packet as too much is as bad as none at all.
When you move them, have the new planting hole prepared, by digging a hole twice as wide and twice as deep and then add plenty humus or leaf mould as this will help hold moisture in the soilwhen you water, you can still do the bottle inserted into the soil and place it in the hole when you back fill, once you have the plant and carton in place gently firm the soil around the Fire, Fire - Motörhead - Fistful Of Aces: The Best Of Motörhead using your toes with a little pressure, as this will make sure there are no air pockets left in the back filled soil.
By the following year IF there are no more new shoots or leaves, take your fore finger and Forget - Azalea - Gonegently scrape away a very small area of bark, if the wood still looks white, green healthy, your plant is OK, if it is dry, dead looking, remove these branches, cut them about inches from main stem, by doing that and you now know the plant has recovered, you should get some more new shoots.
Azalea's like dapple shade, good humus rich acidic soil and add a mulch of leaf-mould every autumn AFTER a watering, this will give protection should frost linger at the shallow roots. Please don't think this poor plant can be fixed over night as it has suffered over a long period under large trees sapping the life from the soil, it will be best to make the recovery slow but sure for it to gather strength and get going again.
Hope this helps a little and things pick up at stage one of the recovery. Good luck and best Forget - Azalea - Gone . Azaleas can be a bit spotty about re-sprouting from bare wood.
If the plant has been growing strongly they seem to be able to do it. If the plant is struggling they do not seem to be able to break the dormancy of those buds. I would continue trying to help them with fertilizer, water and mulch. Cut off a branch until it has only one or two leaves on it. I know on some Burn - Usher - Confessions only have a couple of leaves, and that is out at the end.
Still, try to find a place where there are some leaves lower down. If you cannot find any leaves lower down, then cut anyway. If the plant does not recover it was a loss anyway, dig it up and toss it.
