Care in a nutshell

Fertilisation: Fertilize liberally from March to September with bonsai fertilizer for azaleas

Irrigation: Do not keep too dry. Azalea bonsai need an evenly moist soil.

Overwintering: As a hardy outdoor bonsai, Satsuki azaleas tolerate in a foil tent the lowest temperatures

Pruning: Azaleas toleretes cutting very well. Even after extreme pruning, 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.

Repotting: At the beginning of March, repot into a well-drained, acidic bonsai soil (preferably the japanese Kanuma bonsai soil) with a stronger root cut

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
