Hello. I have an azalea dilemma. I have a large pine straw bed under a few pine trees in my backyard, and I would like to plant some azaleas there. I was hoping to plant them soon but I will be out of the country for a week in mid-September and cannot water them. My question is how long does it take for azaleas to become established enough where they do not require a lot of watering? I can wait until I am back from my trip but I am unsure how frost will affect them? It typically frosts around here in late October. I guess another option is to wait until Spring to plant. Please advise! Thanks.
