How to Feed Rhodys, Azaleas and Camellias

These beautiful flowering shrubs are all over Oregon and Washington and have more flowers than foliage when in full bloom. They grow in a variety of gorgeous colors whites, lavender, reds, and purples and are a perfect addition to any landscape or garden.

Items you’ll Need:

  • Cultivator or Rake

  • E.B. Stone Organic Rhody, Azalea & Camellia Food

  • E.B. Stone Organics Azalea, Camellia & Acid Planting Mix

  • Mulch

 

How To:

Step 1: Remove any existing mulch from around the plant

Step 2: Pour the recommended amount of E.B. Stone Organic Rhody, Azalea & Camellia Food at the base of the plant around the dripline (approximately 1-3 inches over the area)

Step 3: Make the first application in early spring when the buds start to swell. After you apply, then gently scratch the food into the surface of the soil (Feed plants 3x’s per year)

Step 4: If you need to add soil to the area and want to improve the existing soil, add a 1”-2” layer E.B. Stone Organics Azalea, Camellia & Acid Planting Mix around the base of the plant

Step 5:  If weeds are a concern, then use a nice wood mulch of your choice to cover the base of the plant but keep it a couple inches away from the stem

USING ORGANIC FERTILIZER IS IMPORTANT FOR RHODY'S AND AZALEAS

Rhody's and Azaleas are shallow rooted plants, so most of the roots are at the surface of the soil. This means that using organic fertilizer is key to keep them healthy and growing strong.

Note: *Be sure to feed with E.B. Stone Organic Rhody, Azalea & Camellia Food.
