Cunningham White Rhododendron - help

Posted: Today at 10:05

Hi all thanks for all your replies,it was potted up in ericaceous compost and we havent had any frosts so it could be the wee nasties in my water butt ( i thought water butts are recommended for watering) so i think Fairy Girl might be correct as i've had this problem before with rhody's. I think i'll stick with azeleas in future. Thanks again for all your help much appreciated. Tony.

Hi as you see from the pic, I have a grass growing in a small border, probably from seeds dropped by birds.  I don't know what it is - can anyone provide info please.  Many thanks.

Hi I have a two year old white rhododendron, it is in a pot in a woodland setting, in the correct compost and I water it with rainwater.  The first year it put on growth and flowered it was great.  This second year it is not doing anything at all, and I think it is dying as the leaves are turned down and looks like it is wilting.  It is aprox 2ft 6in tall (without pot) and is placed near an Azalea.  The Azalea is doing well and no problem.  Can anyone tell me what the problem is or what to do with it please.  (pic shows it in the greenhouse, as I have brought it in to check no ants have infested, which they haven't).

Hi I have a two year old Cunningham White Rhododendron, it is aprox 2ft 6ins (without pot) and is in a pot in a woodland setting.  It is in the correct compost and I water it with rain water. The fist year it was great, put on growth and flowered. It is placed next to an Azalia.  The Azalia is growing well and flowering but the rhododendron is not doing anything and seems to be wilting, the leaves look limp and there is no sign of growth this year.  Does anyone know what has happened or what I need to do please?

Hi there, the seeds i planted where from a tomato bought in a supermarket it was a fabulous taste so i dug the seeds out of the tomato and sowed them (8) all came through i gave 4 to a friend and planted 4 in my cold greenhouse where they grew better and faster than my moneymakers even turning colour first, but now they are off the plant and indoors they have very thick skins not a lot of juice with very little taste it's a shame they look so good. I have now put them in a draw with some bananas to try to ripen them.
