I inherited this Azalea which despite being stuck in next to no soil and having no attention for years is flowering like mad.
I would like to put it in a nicer pot but to what extent should I prune it and when?
Sheffield, Derbyshire border.
Prune after flowering if you want, although I wouldn’t.
He calls her the chocolate girl
Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
She knows she's the chocolate girl
Cause she's broken up and swallowed
And wrapped in bits of silver

Can you get it in the ground, or does it need to stay in a pot?
You can prune after flowering, as said, but getting it into a better site with better conditions might be far more beneficial for it. You'd probably need to break the pot to get it out though. They're pretty tough, so it shouldn't be hard to move it.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
We have alkaline soil so will need to be pitted. Will pot up and see how it goes.
It must indeed be tough. Thank you.
