Rhododendron in pot

I have several growing in pots.  I give sequestered iron about now.  After flowering I give a feed as advised above.  Just watch your pots dont dry out in summer.  Agree too about keeping it in its pot.

Fantastic Hostafan. ,now you can start growing and selling those hostas   Love all that growing space you will have 

I have a small hexagonal grenhouse......I'm tall so it suits me that way but little elbow room.  Bought for its aesthetic qualities but should have been more practical.

Unhealthy rosemary

Still feel it best to wait a while for weather to warm up and then assess rosemary.  Such prolonged wet weather has affected many plants this year.

The danger is to the  flowers themselves.    Not so much the frost but the rapid thawing after thus the need to plant where it does not get early morning sun.
