Rhododendron

We were given this rhododendron six weeks ago. It had been in a friends garden for a few years and never flowered. We put it in a pot with some ericaceous soil and well rotted household/garden compost and this was the result.

Thanks Paul. I don't know about green thumb ...... More like good luck and possibly, the correct soil in a warmer position in our garden.
