Rhododendron and Side Bed


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.
