About this book

This is an illustrated guide to varieties, cultivation and care, with step-by-step instructions and over 135 beautiful photographs. It is a handy, practical guide to growing and caring for rhododendrons, with instructions for planting outdoors and in containers, mulching, pruning and propagation. It features a full photographic directory of over 50 varieties, including 'Bashful', 'Cecile', 'Homebush', 'May Day', 'Pink Pearl', 'Sappho' and 'Vuyk's Rosyred'. It includes a fascinating history of rhododendrons, from their origins in the Himalayas through to their cultivation in European gardens, and the modern hybrids of today. From tiny, ground-hugging bushes producing small and delicate flowers to huge tree-like specimens clothed in magnificent and glorious blooms, rhododendrons belong to a diverse and fascinating genus. Offering interest from mid-winter to late summer, many of these hardy evergreen shrubs produce exquisitely textured foliage in hues of silver, gold or bronze once the flowering season is over. This practical handbook contains complete instructions for growing rhododendrons, from choosing and buying to planting, propagation and controlling pests and diseases. With over 50 varieties described and illustrted, there is a beautiful rhododendron to suit every garden situation.
