Pot bound azalea

United Kingdom Gb

I have a pot bound azalea, when is the best time to transplant it in to the ground?



Anytime I would think, as if you leave it longer, it could die of claustophobia. Water the hole you put it in first, make the hole bigger than the potsize, better too big with loose soil putting back in the hole after planting, than not big enough. Roots will find it easier to spread out. Freedom at last, lol.

Azaleas need acid soil so you will need to add some ericaceous compost to the planting hole.
