Poor Little Azalea

0 comment

We have a tiny little azalea, about 15 cm high at best, tucked away in a sheltered and shady-ish spot underneath an established ornamental red-currant. It doesn’t really take any care or maintenance and seems have been managing OK, but recently, I noticed that it has turned red.

Now maybe it is normal for azaleas to turn red in the winter like this and I have read that it can be due to cold; but we have had a very mild winter so far. There is another azalea a bit further along the border so I shall compare the two.

Hopefully it will pull through and look much better when the weather warms up. I shall have to try and remember to look in on it from time to time and see if it survives through to flower in the late spring.

I'm Sunil Patel, this is me. I created the Garden at 13 Broom Acres and I open it to visitors. I also bake and write blog posts giving a "behind the scenes" look into what it's like to maintain such a garden.

Visit the blog, then come and visit the garden. We can have a good sit-down, a jolly chinwag and a relaxing cup of tea with a sinfully generous slice of home made cake.
