Fall, The Perfect Time for Encore Azaleas

Plant Encore Azaleas in fall to enjoy flowers until first frost and allow time for roots to establish without damage from extreme temperatures.

In some areas, summer can be too hot to make planting Encore® Azaleas fun, while fall is just right. Also, plants may appear dormant during winter, but they are working hard at creating stronger roots and new flower buds for spring.

Exposure:

When planting your Encore® Azaleas this fall, choose an area that provides full sun with some afternoon shade.

Encore® Azaleas require 4 – 6 hours of full sun to produce their famous, multi-season flowers. However, especially during summer, they need some afternoon shade to maintain balance and vibrant colors.

Soil:

The soil should be acidic to promote healthy growth and well-drained to avoid root rot.

Add nutrients to the soil with organic matter, but not fertilizer (fertilize in spring). To accommodate the root structure, dig a hole that is twice as wide as the the root ball and shallow enough for the top of the root ball to rest above the soil line. Azaleas have shallow roots, which means they grow wide versus deep. If the hole is too deep, you run the risk of root rot.

Cold Protection:

To protect from winter cold, and to help preserve moisture in summer, apply an inch of mulch on top of the soil after planting.

If you live in or are experiencing extremely cold weather during the first year, you may want to cover the plants to provide extra protection while the roots are still developing.

Then, in spring time, fertilize your Encore Azaleas after fear of frost and watch them bloom and grow.

Following spring’s first showcase of flowers, lightly prune to encourage growth and increase blooming for remaining seasons.

Fall is on the way!

Fall is approaching fast.  The first of September is when we usually begin taking orders for annual color such as pansies, panolas, violas, cabbage, kale and mums.  We have all heard of wave petunias, a new growing trend for fall are cool wave pansies.  Cool Wave Pansies have spreading characteristics unlike any other fall annual and will compliment any landscape.  Mums are also an excellent choice for fall color, however, they don’t have a long bloom cycle – but don’t worry, there are a few things you can do to enjoy those same mums year after year.  When your mums have begun to loose their blooms – plant them!  What many people don’t realize is that mums are a perennial – meaning they will return every year.  Planting your mums will keep the roots moist and insulated during the winter so that you can enjoy those beautiful blooms again next fall.
