Feed Alpine azalea
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.

The Alpine azalea is a plant for a rock garden. The Alpine azalea Is small in size; in summer it assumes a pink colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal.

Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them. Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water .

Adversity Alpine azalea
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
