Get your plants ready for the summer months by giving them a feed and a trim after flowering and apply Yates Waterwise Soil Wetter over the root area.
Azaleas are not recommend for planting in kids gardens as the plant is poisonous if consumed.
Here are a few simple steps to keeping your azaleas looking fantastic:
Azalea petal blight is a disease that attacks azalea flowers, turning them into brown mush. To prevent azalea petal blight, just before the flower buds open start spraying with Yates Zaleton® Dual Action Systemic Fungicide every 2 weeks until the end of flowering.
Azalea lace bug is a sap sucking insect pest that causes a silvery mottled appearance on azalea leaves. You might also notice dark spots underneath the leaves, which are lace bug droppings. As with azalea petal blight, a proactive approach is required as once the leaves are damaged, it cannot be reversed. Start spraying both sides of new foliage in early spring with Baythroid® Advanced Insect Killer for Gardens to protect leaves from lace bug damage.
