Advantages of open-ground over container production

Glendoick is the only U.K. Rhododendron grower to still grow most rhododendrons in the open ground. Maddenia and Evergreen azaleas are container grown. Open ground culture several advantages and benefits over container culture:

  • -better and quicker establishment of plants in the garden. Container-grown plants are usually supplied in pots which are too small which causes plants to become pot-bound. The roots cannot break out of the pot shape, establishment is poor and or slow and pot-grown plants take longer to acclimatize to wind and drought.
  • -Open ground plants are hardier and suffer less disease (mildew, etc) than those grown indoors in tunnels etc.
  • -Open ground production requires little or no peat, fewer chemicals and less water.
  • -Some varieties such as souliei are very poor when container-grown.
  • -It allows easier packing and posting and cheaper postal charges.

Larger/Specimen Plants We offer a limited range, 6-10 years old. Demand tends to exceed supply. Ask for the specimen/large plant list or find them online. Specimen plants CANNOT be posted. Customers should collect these plants from the nursery or we can deliver plants locally in our van. In the case of large orders, we may be able to arrange transport by specialist horticultural freight hauliers.
