Rhododendrons and Conifers
Rhododendrons in your Garden
One of the most popular shrubs that people can grow where conditions are suitable for growth. Rhododendrons perform best in stable climates. Ideally, planting in areas that have good rainfall throughout the year with a slightly acidic soil for the best flowering.
Rhododendrons are available in all shapes or sizes. Some also offer prostrate groundcover which grows a few inches high, in addition to trees that grow 100 ft tall. The diversity of rhododendrons is amazing with their flowers ranging from white, red, pink, yellow, blue, magenta, orange and shades and mixtures of these colours.
Imagine the explosion of colour as a result of when April comes around and your rhododendron start to blooms! There are many gardens needing something big and bold to make a statement, and Hedgehogs Nursery in Fife has just the thing! Very big and bold Rhododendrons which are ready for your garden, in 130 litre pots ready to plant. If you are picking up from our nursery in Glenrothes Fife there is a discounted purchase price.
Conifers are plants with seed bearing cones and most are evergreen trees and shrubs with needlelike foliage. Conifers are versatile and attractive additions to gardens, woodlands or just general landscape schemes. They provide colour, structure, form and beauty long after flowers fade on other plants. One instance of the beauty of a conifer is when snow falls and blankets them, giving interest to the winter garden.
Diversity is also in various colours among conifers, some are green, olive-grey, pale yellow, gold, silvery blue, blue green, and of course shades in-between. Conifers also undergo colour changes in autumn, changing to bronze, reddish or plum purple when the temperature becomes colder.
A common form of conifers that are also found in gardens are the dwarf varieties, but another popular trend is bigger conifers for that ‘instant’ effect.
“Big conifers will immediately add structure and composition to the landscape”.
Like our big rhododendrons, Hedgehogs Nursery has big, bold conifer specimens that will provide your garden with that ‘wow’ factor. They range in colour from blue-green, to yellow green, from columnar growth habit to wispy and flowing. We will have that special feature conifer at the nursery for your garden – for that “instant” attractiveness to the garden.
