Hi everyone I have two Rhododendron bushes at the back of my garden, one which flowered this year, the other didn`t but was growing new leaves all summer. Its this one one that is now looking unwell, Ive been away for a fortnight and come home to find all its leaves are drooping, its about 3ft away from the first bush which is fine. Any ideas why?



How long's it been planted?

I`m not sure Bamboo,I moved in here in April and they were here then, but they`ve grown quite a bit in that time. I was going to move it back in June but left it where it was.

possibly lack of water. give the plant a really good soaking and see if it perks up.

We've had a very warm couple of weeks with blistering sunshine at times, so I agree that it probably needs a good watering. Give the other one a good soaking too.
