Need advice on planting azaleas
Hello to all - I am new to this forum and need your expert advice!
I will be planting 12 "Watchet" azaleas on the northern side of my house.
My soil is mostly clay so I know I need to work in some other material to loosen it and provide good drainage. What do you recommend and what proportion? Sand? Peat? Pine straw? Help!
Also, I am going to mulch the entire bed with black, hardwood mulch. Would it be ok to mulch the azaleas with pine straw and then put a layer of the hardwood mulch on top to give a uniform look?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
