Ah....Fairy will put one of her spells on me now but......
John,,you MUST use ericaceous compost when you repot. Definitely. For sure. Without doubt. Temporary or permanent it must ALWAYS be ericaceous compost. If you don't your azalea will suffer and die.
Remove grass, weeds, etc and use ericaceous john innes......not ericaceous mpc. And don't cover the rootball any more than it is now.
