    • From end June to end July    • once

      After flowering, deadhead where practical, to promote vegetative growth rather than seed production. Remove dead flowers from rhododendrons carefully; next year’s buds are just under the old heads. On young and old plants, simply snap off spent flower stalks by bending them over until they break away from their stems.

  • watering

    • From end June to end September    • each week

      Water plants during the summer if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week.
