Subject: [AZ] [this is from the ASK US page, so please send me a CC] - hardwood mulch put on azaleas by mistakeHello, azalea lovers,A lawn service put 3" deep of hardwood mulch under my large, mature azaleas in northern Virginia, near Washington DC (zone 6B). The azaleas are each about 6-8 feet wide, and 4-6 feet tall. There are 2 rows of azaleas, each about 60 feet long, so it would be very difficult for me to remove the mulch and re-do it all with pine mulch. (I didn't know they were using hardwood.)Will this one-time application hurt my plants? (I will make sure pine is used in the future.) What, if any, corrective gardening action should I take? Should I wait and see if my plants look yellow or sick, or will that be too late?Thanks,Natalie
