Q.How To Cut Back Azaleas That Are Taking Over A Flower Bed

Zone 20155 | gbdiaz2 added on May 3, 2020 | Answered

We have azaleas planted in a flower bed that borders a sunroom. Faces west . Large plant growing out of and over away from outside wall. Beautiful foliage and blooms. Do I just have to sacrifice the plant and start over? Thanks for the help. Linda D

after its done blooming in the fall trim it back with hedge trimmers. you can take about 1/3 of the plant off and shape it. like you want. Then in early spring you can trim it again before or just when the leaves start coming out. Then give it fertilizer and mix in bone meal. your flowers will be great next year.
