   Prune your azaleas as soon as their blooming period is through.
The flower buds that produce an azaleas' spring show are formed during
the preceding growing season.  Azaleas pruned too late in the season
will not have a chance to resprout flower buds that have been cut off
and you'll get no flowers in the following spring.

                    You mean dig up the soil,
                    pull all the weeds, plant
                    the seeds, pull some more
                    weeds, water the seeds,
                    and pull some more weeds?
