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...

How To Plant Dig a hole as deep as the pot (no deeper) and at least a third wider.  Mix organic matter (peat moss, top soil, compost) into the soil to be used to fill in the hole.  Backfill, firming soil around root ball.  Water thoroughly! (See How To Water).    Cover surface of soil with bark mulch to keep roots cool and help hold moisture in.  Apply 2 or 3 inches –  more is NOT better.  Don’t pile bark up against tree trunks or on top of the crowns of perennials.
