Gardening Question encore azalea, wilt & death

I left a beautiful, healthy Encore Azalea in a pot with a neighbor to water for 2 weeks I was away. The plant is now dying branch by branch. I've given it (separately) Superthrive, acid & fish emulsion. Nothing is stopping the dying. The leaves wilt & a branch dies. I'm tempted to take it out of the pot and look at the roots. Do you have any suggestions. kmead

Not sure what it is...perhaps it's watering schedule was altered while you were gone. Leaves that turn brown, die and drop off during the summer usually indicate a problem with the azalea. The problem may be too little water, too much water, or too much fertilizer. If the azalea was recently planted, dig it up and check the rootball for moisture, and for the general state of the roots, which should be firm and crisp. Brown and mushy roots may indicate too much water. They may also indicate one of several different fungal infections known collectively as root rot.
