On plant rhodidendrums



Have you fed it? Is it growing in acidic soil?

yes fed it well over the past 3 years with slow release feeding, its in a space between 2 blocks of flats and is a bit over shaded by a hedge on 1 side and the building on other and gets a lot of wind , soil is the same as park land over road with lots of healthy flowers and leaves

Sounds like you need to move the rhodo. this autumn as it probably isn't getting enough light to thrive properly.
