Yes you can buy now......wait just a couple of weeks though Joyce.  After the xmas splurge garden centres will have new stocks in.  You can choose your colour, variety etc.  Go on...spoil yourself.  You deserve it.  treat yourself to a glorious azalea with loads of buds on to enjoy now and when those buds open up in a few weeks 

for £20 you can buy at least 2 good size plants, maybe 3

Not cheap for 9 cm Joyce.  You will see better deals than that.  Check on line 

What is eating my azalea's

Snails too, esp in pots, will have a nibble or two Peanuts

however for weevils...its the grubs in the soil that are doing most damage now.......they can be treated NOW.   Use Provado vine weevil killer for immediate results.  It's about this time when I use this on heucheras, primulas, fuschias etc

nematodes will be useless right now so your plant will contnue to suffer if you wait until spring. Kill the weevils now.   You can use nematodes in mid spring and late summer in future as an option

Yes Daryl it is a lovely plant the ground. esp with its blue cones.  They will grow pretty quickly

Depends on price Joyce.  Perennials bought now in 9cm pots will grow fast. shrubs will be slow. azaleas are slow so I would save a few more pennies to buy a bigger one for flowers this year and next.
