Care in a nutshell
Wiring: The branches of azalea bonsai are very brittle and break easily. Therefore be careful when applying bonsai wire and especially when bending and shaping
Fertilisation: Fertilize liberally from March to September with bonsai fertilizer for azalea
Irrigation: Do not keep too dry. Azalea bonsai need an evenly moist soil.
Pruning: Azaleas toleretes cutting very well. Even after extreme pruning with a sharp bonsai scissors, they sprout in all sites. If you want a lot of azalea flowers next spring then you shouldn't prune too late in the previous year. Stronger branches are removed with a bonsai cutter. A Wound closure agents can be applied to larger cuts to support wound healing.
Overwintering: As a hardy outdoor bonsai, Satsuki azaleas tolerate in a foil tent the lowest temperatures
