How and When to Fertilize Encore Azaleas

Plant was in excellent condition and well packaged

I have no issue with the plants. They are well packed and a good size. However if you do not live in the zone where they are grown you will receive plants in full bloom or mostly past bloom. It is too early to plant them here in zone 5, so they will need to be protected until late April- 2 months of holding them. I will try to buy more local, but you can’t always find what you want locally. Just a heads up for you folks in the colder zones.

‘Autumn Embers’ Encore azalea in 2 gallon container arrived healthy and in bloom. I have it planted in a special azalea mix because we live on clay soil with a pH above 8.0. I bought Autumn Embers because I was on a Zoom call and our guest speaker was an LSU emeritus professor who specialized in azaleas. He said ‘Autumn Embers’ was the longest blooming azalea of all the 33 varieties of Encore azaleas.

First time buying a plant online. Came very well packaged, box notes, water after arrival. Mine was a bit parched and gave it a drink. No blooms but was very healthy and green. I am very satisfied with my purchase and will be buying again in the near future.

I ordered 3 – 3 gallon azaleas. They were in perfect condition and one plant was full of buds ready to open. They are beautiful plants.

I had bought 2 of these at my local nursery and had just planted them when my water line had to be replaced and they were destroyed. So, I took a chance and ordered these from your nursery. When they arrived my mouth literally dropped opened!! They were big, healthy and put the ones from the nursery to shame! They arrived in 2 days flat and are doing great! Will definitely be ordering more plants from you!!
We ordered 4 azaleas and they all arrived in excellent condition and looked very healthy. We were very pleased! We will definitely recommend Plants by Mail and will order from here again.
I was skeptical ordering an azaelea online..and.expected it to be small…but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived and was a beautiful healthy large specimen that rivaled what can be found in a nursery. It was packaged well and arrived quickly. I would definitely order from plants by mail again.
