Hi, What we have is 25 plus English Roseum Pink Rhododendron seed

Botanical name: Rhododendron Catawbiense 'English Roseum'

These are relatively easy to grow as long as soil is acidic...made so, by adding Canadian Spagnum peat moss to soil mixture where planted. These are considered a "low-nutrition" plant, and do well in poor soil (soil that has not been limed or cultivated very much).

In addition, these need a well-drained soil that does not lay wet. For clay soils, we recommend planting almost on top the ground, as these are very surface rooted.

Seed needs to be stratified in the freezer for 3 months prior to planting. Then, soaked for about 12 hours in moist towels before planting. Mix equal parts Peat Moss, Perlite, and sharp Sand as sprouting mixture. (no fertilizer) Start in flat that has a cover for humidity, then remove after sprouting. Sprouting (when everything has been done properly) can take between 6 to 8 weeks. When plants are 8 inches high, they can then be transplanted outdoors in the growing area. Acid soil is a must, and these can grow well in shade or sun. My dad grew these and taught us how to grow them for around 40 years, so we do know that they will grow if handled properly. This is current year seed.

Please feel free to ask any question,

PLEASE NOTE: If anyone purchases 7 or more packets of my seed in any one calendar day, they are welcome to pick out an 8th packet completely FREE.

Thank you for looking!
