how fabulous; when i was little we used to go to woburn abbey sometimes [not inside it but just along the drive] it was covered in rhodedendrons ~ they always remind me of it; yours are spectacular!

Lovely rhodies and azaleas.
When my Mother died last year I adopted my Father's two rhododendrons and three azaleas all of which have been growing in pots for well over twenty years. I was very apprehensive, not having much experience of growing these plants. Glad to say all have survived the winter, although one azalea had to be moved out of a rain shadow and only just in time. The early flowering azalea has been a picture this Spring and the others are in various stages of budding. Phew!

Must admit Xela inherited all my rhododendroms camellia and some of my azaleas when we moved here four years ago,must say they have grown well since,mine are all in the ground so think i must have the right soil
