Rhododendron possibly dying

Posted: 05/02/2013 at 17:00

I have a small, not very well established rhododendron that I uncovered in a border last summer just after I moved into the property. It has been doing absolutely fine until recently when we've had hard frosts, snow, heavy rain and gale force winds!!! The leaves are sagging downwards and I've noticed that they are starting to turn brown all over as if they have died. At the base of the plant there is a lot of moss growing around it. There is another rhododendron in the same border which is perfectly healthy. I wondered whether moving it may help?? I would very much appreciate some advice on what I can do to help this plant as they are so beautiful when in flower.

I'm planning on insulating my greenhouse with bubble wrap as we have got loads of it lying around (we moved to Brittany in April!!!) but I have no idea how you actually fix the bubble wrap to the glass. Any ideas and tips would be gratefully received.
