During the late spring and early summer the
rhododendron bed is perhaps the most memorable feature of the garden. The rhododendrons
thrive in the slightly acidic soil. A couple of clematis grow over some
of the rhododendron during the summer increasing the period of interest.
To the back of the bed is a 4’ wide path. The original 2’ path was widened
first to 3’ and then to 4’. The wider path makes for easier access and
the edges are softened by plants to avoid the motorway look.
