Feeding an Azalea Plant

I have an azalea in a pot that is just coming into flower. What can I use to feed it other than buying an ericaceous feed?

I believe azaleas are acid-loving plants, so you can mix some used coffee grounds into the soil occasionally.

First - you don't want to feed Azaleas until after they finish with their blooming. After that - coffee grounds and leftover brewed coffee!

Use pickle juice; when the pickles are gone fill the jar with water, shake well and pour on the soil. I used this for years while living in Florida, after my neighbor gave me his secret. He had the nicest azalea's in our neighborhood.

Azaleas are acid loving plants, mir-acid is all I use.

You can use oak leaves and pines needles raked around your plants to help acidfy the soil. This worked fine for me for years. jjs. W. Palm Beach, FL
