    Hello nrp. I think you are already doing all that can be done. I don't think you are alone in watching precious plants struggling in this weather. Hate to say it but I wish it would rain.

    Im afraid you will have water it with tap water until it rains. It will survive one a few times of non acid water but it might not survive no water at all. Mine is suffering too, i gave it the last of the water in the butt, hoping for rain now.

    FYI I have six different azeleas that I have watered with tap water (hard water area) all season. They are all newly established. Are you watering enough? I do it twice a day at present
