RHODODENDRONS    –  Spring 2018

Our Rhododendron are grown locally to perfection and are conditioned to our climate.  Special conditions are required.  They prefer a protected location out of bad winter winds,  humusy organic acid soils that stay moist throughout the season.   Do not plant in clay soils or dry sandy soils.


When planting, dig the hole only as deep as the depth of the pot.   (Rhodos languish when planted too deep!)     Dig the hole wider than the root ball and incorporate peat moss into the existing soil to help hold moisture.    Bark mulch 2 to 3 inches deep will help hold in the moisture, too.    Once in the spring fertilize with an acid based fertilizer such as Espoma Hollytone.

These are the varieties that we have in stock this spring.  We can probably get other varieties through the season, so call us if there is something in particular that you are looking for and we will try our hardest to get it for you.
