Many of our visitors ask when will the Rhododendrons be in flower? Well now is the time! Some of our Rhododendrons date back from 1855 to the 1870’s, but many were donated by John Waterer and Sons, Surrey and planted in 1906. Their sometimes scented red, pink, white, purple or yellow flowers and much loved by bees as well as our visitors. Over the years, many of our Rhododendron plant labels were lost and we are currently identifying what we have. During the flowering period, we ask a Rhododendron expert to help us do this as there are around 20,000 different ones! This will enable us to find out which plants can be pruned or not and which ones could be rare. We will soon start pruning and replanting with species and cultivars new to BBG and only choose the very best!
