Azaleas worked hard, deserve attentionNow that your azaleas have finished blooming, it's time to take care of any pruning they may need. It's also a good time to fertilize, although azaleas aren't, as David Clement of the Home and Garden Information Center says, "really nutrient hungry." If you do fertilize, use a granular fertilizer made for acid-loving plants such as Hollytone. And don't overdo it. Azaleas have a shallow root system, which too much fertilizer can damage.Azaleas also benefit from mulching this time of year.

Q. You recently gave a recipe for a non-DEET mosquito repellent. It isn't necessary to mix up that witches' brew of Avon Skin-So-Soft and vinegar.Avon is capitalizing on its unofficial reputation for repelling bugs. You can now buy Skin-So-Soft Moisturizing Suncare Mosquito, Flea and Deer Tick Repellent. At least with this product you won't smell like a freshly dressed salad.A.The mosquito repellent recommended by one reader of this nTC column calls for mixing 1 tablespoon citronella oil, 2 cups white vinegar, 1 cup water and 1 cup Avon Skin-So-Soft bath oil. The new Avon repellent is certainly easier and probably smells nicer.
