PLANT OF THE WEEK: RHODODENDRON
The shadiest corner of your garden becomes the highlight of your spring display when you plant a rhododendron – probably the most brilliantly-coloured of all the early-flowering shrubs with masses of sumptuous blooms in every hue from deepest scarlet to magenta pink.
All varieties of rhododendron like a moist, acidic soil and dappled shade, where they’ll make a sizeable and very showy shrub in time. If space is limited, or you garden on neutral or chalky soil, don’t worry: you can still enjoy rhodies. Just choose a compact variety bred to thrive in containers filled with ericaceous (acidic) compost for an equally spectacular display each spring.
Open the vents
When the sun comes out now, a greenhouse can heat up rapidly. To ensure that young plants and seedlings (or even plants that are overwintering in the greenhouse) don't overheat, it's a good idea to open the vent in the morning and close it up again at night. This also applies to any plants growing in a conservatory.
