Azaleas in Springtime. Hall Place Gardens Kent England, UK.
Camera Nikon D700 with 24-120mm Lense.
ISO 500, 1/60th sec, f/8.0, 78mm.

What a glorious display the Azaleas and Rhodos put on in the Springtime. Here at Hall Place there are many different types of gardens; sunken, borders, rock gardens, wonderful hedges in all shapes and sizes, beautiful blossom trees, grasses, traditional walled garden plants, herbs, etc…
Azaleas are woodland plants and therefore do best in most half-shaded positions. They will however succeed in the open on practically all lime free soils; providing plenty of peat or leaf mold is mixed with the soil when planting, and annual top mulch of leaf mold placed around the plants to keep surface roots moist. One important point to remember is that all old flower heads must be removed after flowering. Imagine going around all these bushes and pulling off the dead flower-heads:-)

We love Azaleas…
