Azalea Sweet Nellie

DESCRIPTION: Sweet Nellie is a medium growing azalea with vibrant cerise coloured double flowers during spring. Requires little water once established.
USE IN: Feature planting in Japanese style gardens: Suited to container planting.
LOCATION: Plant in well drained soil rich in organic matter. Azaleas thrive in acidic soil, here are some simple tips on how to achieve this. Apply a layer of pine bark mulch or pine needles after planting, as water is applied this will adjust the ph level of your soil. The alternative is to add a 2 inch layer of sphagnum moss to the soil before planting, turn the soil to ensure the moss is mixed evenly, this method has the added benefit of retaining moisture within the soil.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Continue to water on a regular basis for the first twelve months to ensure the plant becomes fully established. Prune after spring flowering to promote dense growth and flowering next season, fertilise using a slow release fertiliser such as Osmocote which is specially formulated for azaleas.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm including the pot height of 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
