Pot Bound

I have a fairly large, well flowering Rhodi which is in a large pot.  We want to transplant to our new garden (into ericacious) into the soil.

Should we cut the roots down?

Will it sill flower?


Or should I leave in pot and plant the pot into the soil?

    I would have thought if your soil is acid enough then just teese the roots loose and plant on,make sure the root ball is handled very carefully as the roots are massed and tender also the rhody has no big root feeder and is a shallow rooter so gently does it and make sure the level of planting is not deeper than it was in the pot, a good soak ( in the shade ) before planting  and a good organic rich loose soil to start it off,Spring is best for planting but not esensual . Good luck

  • thank you so much - that is realy helpful.
