Does my satsuki look healthy ? ( azalea )

Post  SidneyDR on Wed Jan 24, 2018 1:34 pm

Hi,
I have bought this tree about a year ago. It has struggled a little with leaves turning brown, which turned out okay in the end. ( brother used the same watering bucket and added some tomato feeder and forgot to tell me).
Would you say that the tree looks healthy now?

It looks fine to me bearing in mind it is winter. It looks just like several of mine. I keep mine under an open cover, but I do have one in the open. I don't think there is anything for you to worry about,

It looks OK, but not healthy IMO.

If you are worried then limit the number of flowers to about 1 in 3. Ans as soon as they start to wilt remove them - so the tree does not try to set seed. That will leave plenty of energy for healing etc. I would not do any work on it this year, no pruning or repotting etc. And make sure you keep it slightly acidic.
