Please can you advise me of the best time to replant a container Azalea (Rhododendron v ‘Glowing Embers’). It has been in the same container for 3 years, although it is still flowering I think It needs a bigger pot. Thanks.

Rhododendrons are best re-potted immediately after flowering as a rush of new growthe begins. Use soil acid soil as well as lime-free compost.
