Can you please give me some advice on planting a new rhododendron. I live in Folkestone & share a communal garden. I may have to plant it in a clay pot, but possibly in the ground if this is preferable for the plant. I need to know what conditions it likes, soil & feeding etc. & whether in an open space or diess it prefer to be near a fence or perhaos a brick wall? ( South,North,East or West? Which is best? )
my daughter in Guildford has 2 in clay pots, she planted 5 years ago & they are fabulous! They are a metre tall, & at least a metre wide. They are in glorious bloom right now. She spoke of special soil she had to buy to plant them in?
and dies it need attention during winter months ?
All information would be very greatly appreciated...thankyou.....
