Hi, someone has gone to the trouble of digging up an azalea for me, even though my soil is alkaline! So today I have planted it in a large pot with ericaceous soil, and put it in the shade, do you think I should cut it back in anyway to give it a chance. many thanks

i would be tempted to give it a light prune and water regularly and copiously.

Oh lord... this is so not the time of year to dig any shrub up. As you have already potted it up keep watering and in a wind free shady position. What are you future plans for the shrub?

well, I will need to keep it in the pot as my soil is so anti-azalea! I will just try to look after it to please the person who gave it to me (my mum!).
