AZALEA
For some years now we have made a speciality of these beautiful shrubs, and have, for this coming season, a fine stock of all groups. No other range of plants give a greater display in spring and also colour in the autumn. Azaleas are woodland plants and therefore do best in most halfshaded positions. They will however succeed in the open on practically all lime free soils — providing plenty of peat of leaf mould is mixed with the soil when planting, and annual top mulch of leaf mould placed around the plants to keep surface roots moist Important: All old flower heads must be removed after flowering.
A selection of 10L specimen plants are available.

These, together with the dwarf azaleas, make ideal gifts as they take up little room even in the smallest garden.
