Here's a great offer for any bargain hunters! This pack includes 4 rhododendron species supplied in 3L pots which should grow to about 1.50-1.75 metres tall in 10 years. These plants are seconds or mis-shaped, but still come with our 12 month guarantee (so long as you follow the planting instructions enclosed).

Customers return to us year after year and say how pleased they are that these bargain plants have performed so well. We need to make sure that all our customers are happy, so we can't sell these at full price. This offer will be our selection, named with descriptive labels in a range of colours. Sorry, but we can't advise which varieties are available.

The plants usually retail at £24.95 so at £10.00 each, that's under half price! Ideal rhododendrons for those who fancy a foray into the species world!

Available online only, but you can 'click and collect' at the checkout.

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 varieties. Avoid waterlogged sites.

Pruning

Not normally required. Tidy wayward shoots after flowering. Evergreen azaleas and Bloombux can be clipped into a low hedge.

Deadheading

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