Parky, the weather has been on the cool side.  Give it another week 

Whats gone wrong with my Rhododendron?

Posted: 20/04/2016 at 16:24

Well, it's not phytophthora.  A fungal problem though.  Have you been watering it or is it in a heavy wet spot?

if mine  would remove the infected leaves and clean around the plant

even on my light soil I am seeing one or two casualties of the wet winter and I think your rhodo is a casualty darren 

interesting to see what others say

It's just the speed they germinate at.  Mine are in a cold unheated gh and I would expect to see shoots by the weekend....planted on their sides

Bark chips look fine when first applied but soon look tatty.  It is a natural product so variable in quality 

Probably shouldn't be surprised but...

Amazing how different it can be KT53. ,we all know how much drier it is by a wall but, yes, around plants too.  The rain is deflected by the canopy of the plant

woodlice, the menaces :(

Woodlice?  I have several pots around my bungalow and woodlice gather to breed under them so the solution is to lift the pots every few days and squash them with my shoes.  It is very effective.

in the garden itself I don't worry about woodlice....they do little or no damage there.
