Azaleas like acidic soil.  Peat moss provides that.  Don't worry about the peat moss now-azaleas don't like their very fragile roots disturbed.  Use a fertilizer for azaleas and rhodedendroms-it's acid based.  That should do the trick.  Just follow the directions on the box of fertilizer.  Don't over feed it.

If you cant find the peat moss, use burlap.  The principle is the same, and it should work out fine. -Birdy

next fall when you are working in that area.....just mix it in with the special fertilizer....a little around the plant.....If it seems to be working well, it must be in an acid place.

some of my neighbor put their coffee grounds around it in the fall.....that is acid.
