When to Repot Satsuki Azaleas
Repotting is a big stress to any tree, and barerooting is the biggest stress to a tree. When repotting Satsuki Azaleas, it is better to do it at a certain time. Repotting in early to middle spring is best. In my area, which is St. Louis, I repot my satsukis in middle to late march. Some people say that you should repot after flowering, but this is not the case. Flowering is the second biggest stress to a satsuki. So repotting and flowering in the same year is not a healthy thing to do for a tree. That is why when I repot, I do not let the satsuki flower that year.
