I have Azalea, Camellia, Rhododendron and pieris all in pots. They're all quite healthy looking but they're getting a bit big for their pots. Is now a good time to re pot them or should I wait till spring?

Repot in spring - they won't grow at this time of year, and if you repot now the fresh compost will get sour in the wet and cold.   Repotting in the early spring will give them a boost and they'll grow away beautifully next year.

Of course you know to use ericaceous compost

Thank you Dove. Yes I know to use ericaceous compost...that's the reason they're in pots
