<p>Yes, you can definitely grow azaleas using peat-free compost. Azaleas are generally adaptable and can thrive in a variety of growing mediums. When using peat-free compost, make sure it is well-draining and acidic, as azaleas prefer slightly acidic soil. You can amend the compost with materials like leaf mold, pine bark, or composted wood chips to create a suitable environment for your azaleas. Additionally, regular watering and mulching will help maintain moisture levels and provide essential nutrients. By choosing peat-free compost, you are taking a positive step towards reducing peat use and promoting sustainable gardening practices.
