Question: When is the best time to prune azaleas?
Azaleas usually need little pruning, but sometimes it is advisable to cut off a few twigs here and there to force thick growth. This should be done in spring. You also can pinch off the ends of growing twigs in spring. Doing so will force several side buds to grow and will result in a bushier shrub.
