When to repot Azaleas

Zone mildura | sepat1@bigpond.com added on May 9, 2015 | Answered

Going over to mums for Mother's Day, and bought a new big ceramic pot for her azalea. Can we repot it now, as it has new buds all over, or is this too early for them?

The general rule of thumb is to not re-pot a plant when it's in bloom. It is advised to wait until after flowering. The stress of re-potting may hinder the azalea's flowering attempt. Also, during re-potting, you run the risk of flower buds dropping off.
