Rhododendrons

I bought a beautiful  large rhododendron in Spring but as I have heavy clay soil I kept it  in a pot.  Do I need to water and fertilise it now after flowering and how do I keep it safe through the winter?

  • Thank you both Doghouse Riley and Mike Allen.  I will follow your precious advices.  We also have a fishpond so I will use the water and sludge from the pond as a fertiliser.  I will probably plant it in the ground adding lots of ericaceous compost to the clay soil.  Hope this works!image
