This dwarf rhododendron has been in the garden ever since I moved in about 9 years ago. It has survived a digger truck mowing over it when I was having some building work done, and it's only just about recovered - still not many flowers but it's the best I've ever seen it πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸΌ

Morning @lyndag - coincidently I've never tested my soil but I inherited 3 from the previous house owner and they seem to grow well. I probably should give them a mulch of ericaceous compost soon too. Good luck with the Easter egg shopping, loads still around although my fav always goes quickly - Cadburys buttons πŸ˜€

Totally... Everything in my garden is coming to life including tree peonies, Montbretia as well as camellias look set to burst and I'm worried that in a couple of weeks it'll suddenly get cold and Spring will be a disaster. The roses are also throwing up new shoots. Everything has gone mental this year 😏🚫🚫🚫
