May 05, The next year’s blossoms typically start forming at the beginning of July, so you must prune an azalea bush before then. If you prune azaleas after the beginning of July, you may not get any flowers on the bush next year. Dec 17, A mature azalea that outgrows its space or becomes leggy and unattractive can benefit from rejuvenating pruning to cut back old wood.

Just moved into a home that has 60 year old azaleas across the front of the house.

Such pruning cuts are done while the shrub is dormant in winter. Jun 03, Immediately after blooming is the best time to cut back or trim azaleas. Cutting back right after blooming gives the gardener a chance to get the dead blooms off of the plant and to shape up the shrub. If you wait and prune the azalea later in the year, there’s a chance that you could prune off next year’s blooms. Sep 10, If you don’t mind waiting a few years for another beautiful azalea show, you can hard-prune in winter or early spring.

You should cut it back immediately after flowering finishes, or as soon thereafter as possible. This would probably be an acceptable weekend to do it.

Prune the azalea again the following spring.

You may have to fertilize afterwards with an organic fertilizer and make sure the shrub stays appropriately watered if you get no rain. Just moved into a home that has 60 year old azaleas across the front of the house.

They were not properly trimmed for the last 10 years at least. We cut them back last summer to about 3 feet but they are still really bad looking. Can they be cut really low and started over? I hate to kill them, but will have to remove them if I can't get them in pruning forsythia shrubs, 1887 Wilmington MA. We are in central Georgia.
