Azaleas

Azaleas

I've been finding a lot of goodies out in the yard this year as I've been doing yardwork. And from what I've heard the lady who used to live here was an avid gardener. I think as she got on in years she probably couldn't get around so well as the flower beds and shrubs have all been sorely neglected. There was a wonderful rock garden on the side but now it's mostly grass. I'd love to restore it when I have the time, energy and money.

Little by little I've been finding treasures. Last month when I cut back the rose bush in the backyard I found two azaleas. One of them was tangled up with a prickly shrub which I don't know the name of but I know I've never liked that bush when I've seen them. I wondered why the azaleas were doing so poorly. I didn't think it could be because of the rose bush and a lack of sun. And then today on Gardening ny the Yard the Gardening Guy was talking about azaleas and he said they like an acidic soil? or something like that. He said that azalea's do not like to grow beside concrete/brick walls or whatever because of the affect the concrete has on the soil? I think he suggested putting some sulfur and alflafa meal in the soil. Would anyone know about this? I love azaleas and short of digging them up and moving them to a bietter location I'd love to know how to restore them to the beauties they're capable of being.

Edit - I went out this morning and took a picture of one of the sad little azaleas. Do you think it's worth moving?
