how do i cut my azaleas after blooming, where do i cut it
I don't know where to cut my azaleas after the blooms start dying, or do I just pull the dead flowers off? I notice there are new leaves just under the flowers. What do I do?
Deadheading works if your objective is to simply remove spent blooms. If, however, you want to control the size of the bush, encourage it to become bushier (thus yielding more flowers the next year,) or reinvigorate an older plant, pruning the branches is what you want to do.

I have always just dead headed my azaleas, once they have died .This has always worked for me.
