Hi all, I'm new to this forum (and gardening in general) but my dad bought a couple of plants last year from a charity shop but the shop didn't know what they were and now he has gave me the task to try and find out. After looking through numerous amounts of photos I've admitted defeat and am stumped as to what they may be so thought I'd join a forum and ask others for help. I can't find anywhere, where I can add photos to this thread so firstly, can anybody tell me how I'd do that? Ha Ha. Thanks.

Daniel if you're on a PC you'll see a picture of a tree above the text box where you type you're bits and pieces, just click on that and then select which pic you want to upload and the rest I'm sure you'll know!

Ahhh ok thanks, so I'd have to go on to a PC to do it rather than my phone.. I'll quickly try now before I have to go to work!

First is a Rhododendron, second is an azalea, although which variety they are I don't know as there are over a thousand different varieties.

Dan sorry didn't mean to sound as though you can only do this on a PC but that's they only way I do it and the way I knew, I've no idea how to do it by other means than the PC but others on here will be able to help you with that although I see you already have the ID's you needed so that's great. Pretty Azalea's

Wow quick work! Thanks dave!

It's ok heather, I think that is the only way you can do it actually.
But thanks for your help anyway as I wouldn't have got them photos up otherwise haha

Dan, you will need to plant your two shrubs in ericaecous soil, it doesnt like lime!
