How to Plant

The Rhododendron 'Scintillation' prefers shaded positions and acidic soils. As an evergreen plant, minimal pruning will be needed. We recommend giving your Rhododendron some ericaceous feed, which suits acid-loving plants, in spring and late summer.

Into the Ground

Ensure you have some moist soil or peat-free compost to hand, plus a spade and watering can.

  1. Dig a hole that's twice the size of the plant's rootball.
  2. Carefully remove the Rhododendron 'Scintillation' from its container and place it in the planting hole, back-filling with soil until it's secure.
  3. Water thoroughly so that moisture reaches the roots, adding extra soil as needed.
  4. If planting as borders or hedges be sure to keep an eye on spacing so there's room to grow.

Into a Pot

You can use the same tools for planting in a pot, as well as a large container that will give your Rohodendron plenty of room to grow.

  1. Pour a small amount of soil into the bottom of your chosen container.
  2. Put the shrub in place and then back-fill soil around the rootball.
  3. Water thoroughly and add more soil as needed.
