Rhodos and Friends

For those of you who garden in warmer zones, you can skip this section, unless you need a good laugh by looking at our miserable (but brave) struggling ‘rhodos’.
Growing and appreciating rhododendrons here are quite different from gardens in warmer zones where they can grow like weeds. Here, it can be a challenge; both our soil and climate are not kind to them, but we want to play with them anyway. I must admit that, with the way I neglected my rhodos, any rhodos that can survive in my garden almost anyone else can grow them.
