■A scientific name: Rhododendron ■Another name: Rhododendron ■A course name: Heath family ■Anthesis: From April to May
■Management method ・We like the sun, but let's manage it in partial shade as we are poor at heat of the midsummer. ・I do mulching to spread humus and a Burk tip all over the origin of stock as heat measures. ・It prevents you from being exposed to the afternoon sun. ・The rhododendron likes acid soil. Please plant it in acid Yodo that mixed peat moss and Kanuma soil. ・In the case of a potted plant, it becomes easy to dry when I do overstuffed root. The transplantation to every bowl one size big in spring is necessary not to raise overstuffed root. ・露地植えでは水はけのよい高い位置に植え、用土は鉢植と同じ鹿沼土を多用するとよくできます。
■Manure ・I give slow-release manure as midwinter manure in about February and May after the flower.
■Watering ・Please fully give it in the morning in the summer in the evening. ・I give water in winter if soil dries.
■The pruning I pick from the origin of flower early if I wither away after a flower. I am not accompanied by a flower in the next year when I leave floral design unattended as a new branch lengthens from the underarm which I picked and puts up flowering sprout.
■Pest In spring: I sterilize it for lace bug spider mites from March to October.
I like the sun and a good place of the drainage. When I plant a seedling permanently, it prevents you from destroying the soil. If the surface of the soil dries, doing it, please fully give water.
