#ProPlantTips for Care

P.J.M. Rhododendrons look so fragile, but they are tough as nails. Follow these quick tips for success.

They'll love the east side of your house or having some protection from the hottest part of the day. In cooler climates, they can tolerate more sun.

Rhododendrons in general love a rich acidic soil that has lots of organic matter. Mix a generous handful of Dr. Earth Acid Lovers Organic and Natural Planting Mix well with your native soil to get them off to a good start when planting.

Pour a bag of Root Booster in the bottom of your planting hole after it's dug, but before you place the plant. That is designed to help the roots establish in your native soil quickly.

They will greatly appreciate a few inches of mulch over the top of the soil. Please be careful not to pile up the mulch against the trunks of the plant.

Provide even, regular amounts of moisture to keep your P.J.M. healthy and stress free.

Once the flowers fade after the spring blast, it's time to do any trimming if necessary. Right after the flowers finish, your Rhododendron will put on a nice flush of new growth and set next year's flower bud.

Fertilize them every two months in the growing season.
