Thanks Val,My white ones don't seem to have done as well this year,for some reason..and these have been slow to get going..I love this colour too ..

Have you had another early morning Sandra!!It's a beautiful one tho' a bit chilly outside!:-)

15 Apr, 2014

 

A very early morning,Val..too early ! :o( It was a bit frosty here too,but warming up nicely now..:o)

I love these and used to have a few in different colours but only have the purple ones left now. Perhaps the others are more delicate and tender?

Like it and Love it, a gorgeous colour, the white one you gave me last year has been lovely too;0)

It's really strange,Chris,as I've always had a good display of white ones..maybe they have gone off me..it happens ! Lol x

I should have waited till today,Carole,as some more have opened up fully now..that's what you get being so impatient ! I'm glad yours is doing well :o) x

That's a beauty isn't it. I have had one for about three years now, and it has got smaller and smaller. Maybe its not had enough attention !

Thanks Amy,that's it exactly,and so perfectly formed :o)

Hi Cinders,nice to see you again,and thank you..I wonder if that is why my white ones aren't as good this year? I have had them such a long time..probably they need splitting again,as the flower heads are quite small,like yours..

I like it Bloomer...

Thank you,Johnjoe ..:o)

Really pretty colour. My white ones were a bit of a no-show this year but the mauve were good and the claret have been even better.

17 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks T.bear..so it's not just my white ones then ? very disappointing this year ..they usually stand out so well in my long border..

17 Apr, 2014

 

That is delightful.....

20 Apr, 2014

 

Thank you Dd2..I only have two purple ones,but they are sending out more flowers now..I love them..:o)

20 Apr, 2014

 

Worth growing then?

20 Apr, 2014

 

Definitely,Dd..They were originally in my long border,but for some reason they didn't do well at all,so I moved them to the back...It's the first time they have flowered so well..so who knows why? judging by comments above,I'm not on my own this year..

As my OH would say a mystery!!

Hi Sandra, very pretty, wonderful colour ...... and a cracking photograph. <]:~)) You certainly have found the right location for it. Funnily enough we planted a Rhodi in our garden, 15 years ago ... It did nothing for 5 years until we moved it ... We will have to take drastic action next year, as it is now far too big for the garden.

28 Apr, 2014

 

Thank you Alan,they have sent out a few more flowers now,and look so nice..I shall nurture the two I have,and wait till they are big enough to split..I hope you resolve your Rhodi dilemma,such a shame if you can't keep it..I don't have any,so I don't have that problem..

28 Apr, 2014

 

I was only thinking of a light shaping, I wasn't going to take the chainsaw to it .... "Happy Gardening".

28 Apr, 2014

 

Glad to hear it ! treat it like you do when having your hair cut...shorter at the sides and a bit off the top :o)

28 Apr, 2014

 

OK, hadn't heard that one before, but it sounds like good advice ...thank you.

29 Apr, 2014

 

Only if you have a competent Hairdresser/Barber ! Lol..
