the HOW TO of Brindabella Rhododendrons

Our Brindabella selected rhododendrons are tough - really tough

and can be grown like this:

In pots: rhododendrons are probably the world's best flowering

pot plants. Why? Because where they come from in the

mountains, they thrive in pockets of soil in the rock which is

exactly like a pot. We have some of our selected rhododendrons

that have lived in the same pot for 16 years, receiving only water

year round and a dessert spoon of slow release azalea/camellia

fertiliser once a year - and they flowers spectacularly. Never

repotted. IMPORTANT pots must be small keeping the roots

tight. So choose pots that are only 30cm x 30cm x 30cm - no

bigger - ever. Use only potting mix marked azalea/camellia and

ensure drainage holes remain open at all times - put the pot up

20mm off the ground. Water with a dripper placed right next to

the trunk. Perfect for shady verandahs on south or east side of

your house, greenhouses and under shady trees. Easy.

In Ground: our selected rhododendrons may be grown in all

locations where soil will allow azaleas or camellias to thrive.

Always place them facing to the south, east or north. Our

rhododendrons can tolerate full sun in the morning but are really

happy under dappled light from overhanging trees or where they

are shaded all afternoon by a fence or building. Apply bark chip

15cm thick in a 1m diameter circle around each rhodendron

right up to their trunk and replensih annually. Nothing else

required except weekly deep watering with a dripper placed

right next to the trunk. Easy.
