This is a lovely collection of 4 dwarf Rhododendrons that compliment each other and are suitable for containers, smaller gardens or for the front of a border. They are all tough and hardy plants that will grow well throughout the UK and Northern Europe.

We grow these plants in 3L pots and we normally sell them for £14.95 each. They are 15-25cm tall now, reaching around 50-75cm in 10 years. Usually they flower in April/May and often have interesting foliage

This special offer is for online purchase only, but you can 'Click and Collect' at the checkout if you wish to collect from our nursery.

This lovely collection includes one of each of the following varieties:

Carmen AGM: Waxy dark red flowers in flat trusses, one of the deepest red dwarfs available. Flowering in April 
Egret AGM: Masses of tiny white bell-shaped flowers on a compact neat growing plant, best in some sun to flower freely. Flowering in April. 
Wigeon: Saucer-shaped deep lavender pink flowers with deeper spotting. Compact habit and grey-green leaves. Vigorous and easy to grow. Flowering in May.
Wren AGM: Clear yellow flowers, very free flowering, with a low, spreading habit. Shiny foliage turns bronzy red in winter. Flowering in May

These 4 first grade plants make an ideal gift for friends and relatives anywhere in Europe. Just enter a message at the checkout, and we can include a Gift card with the plants.

This is an amazing offer, saving you £14.80 off individual prices.

Customer Reviews

"Robust plants, and of a decent size (for dwarf rhododendrons) - they have taken well after planting and are looking healthy and vigorous. Good value! The only downside - which was not the fault of Millais Nurseries - was that the carrier had partially squashed the packing box, which meant about half of one plant had to be pruned off."

The Basics

Ideal soil

Acidic soil, good organic content, pH 4.5-6.0. Inkarho range of rhododendrons will tolerate soils up to pH7.5

Sun or Shade

Light dappled shade is best for most varieties.

Shelter

Refer to hardiness rating. Give young plants protection.

Site Selection

Avoid close to trees, roots, invasive weeds, walls, hot patios, dry banks and waterlogged soils. Do not use weed matting or stone mulch.

Plant spacing

Use the height shown in 10 years as a guide to the distance between each plant. Allow room for plant to fill out. If planting closer for instant impact, be prepared to move plants after a few years.

Compost

  • 3 litre pot, dig in 10-20 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 7.5 litre pot, dig in 20-30 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 70-80cm specimen, dig in 60 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 100-120cm specimen, dig in 120 litres of ericaceous compost.

Planting depth

Plant high in the ground, with the top of the rootball visible.

Feeding

Slow-release ericaceous feed recommended in March and straight after flowering.

Mulch

Recommended every few years.

Water

The key ingredient! Keep moist all season, especially the critical time at end of June for flower bud initiation. Tap water is better than no water. Heavy dose at least once per week in dry weather.

Drainage

Ensure good drainage in winter, especially with yellow flowering varieties. Avoid waterlogged sites.

Pruning

Rhododendrons and Camellias: Not normally required. Tidy wayward shoots after flowering.

Evergreen azaleas and Bloombux can be clipped into a low hedge.

Magnolias and Acers: Formative pruning when young to shape into a tree or bush.

Deadheading

Remove old flower-heads, particularly on young or weak plants.
