what's wrong with my Rhododendron

Posted: 09/07/2013 at 21:40

Hi Fairygirl, Thanks for the message. The pot is around 38-40cm. At first, I thought might be the acid level is not enough in the soil, so I added some Rhododendron compost and gave it good water last night. I move it to a shade area this morning as well. I will see what happens in couple of days, finger crossed.

Yes, Paul. I agree with you. The brown leaves are quite crisp and I have already cut them off. I moved the plant to a shade area this morning. Hopefully, this could help it during the hot Summer.

Hi Paul,

So glad to hear it. Yes, it almost has full sun on the daytime. I thought it has a serious disease. Finally, the lovely Summer arrived but it too much.

It's in a pot at the moment. Should I move it in shade area tomorrow?

Thanks a lot.

My rhododendronl's leaves went brown and yellow in the last few days. It did have very good flowers this spring. I don't know what it wrong at the moment.

Thanks.

By the way, do I need make a couple holes at bottom of the sacks for drainage?

plants dying - conifer

Thanks for the reply.

I am doing to keep eyes on both trees for a couple of months. I will do a trim for the big one until Jul-Aug as above suggestions. The little one - the ugly one, I will see how much the pale green leaves could grow back. I don't know what the previous house owner did. Maybe it's by frost because the tree can get early morning sunshine. Maybe it's by a weedkiller. The green leaves look growing on some dead brown leaves. Strange& Interesting! I do agree the gravel isn't doing a good job for the plants.

Thanks you so much. I see what I can find more information about this free plant which is coming with my new house. Otherwise, I have to dig it out.

Thanks for all the suggestions and information.
