What a pest…

I know they cause problems, the rangers at the woods near our home have spent years and a huge amount of sweat removing vast amounts of them. But they’ve left a few – and at this time of year, I’m glad they have.

  1. I like them too, if correctly positioned where there is enough space, and kept under control. I’ve inherited a few… hope I won’t regret keeping them.

  2. They are glorious at Sandringham at the moment, just road after road and there is also a Rhododendron Drive, very close to Sandringham House 🙂

  3. Seeing the rhododendrons out in otherwise dark woodland is one of my guilty pleasures too. Yet another plant that has become a victim of its own success.

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
