To Plant a Rhody in alkaline soil or not?

I'm from Rhododendron country living in alkaline clay country, but I love my Rhodies so I thought I'd try. Fortunately, I knew enough to augment my alkaline clay soil with not just with an acid booster, but a whole planter of special Rhododendron, etc. soil. I found such soil from a PA outfit and now I have a very happy Black Hat sitting in the shade on the NORTH side of my zone 6a house.

Dead

My plants arrived dead the 1st time. They sat on a FedEx truck for 2 weeks. They replaced them but after asking for next day shipping, they sat on a FedEx truck for 2 weeks again. And again they were dead.

We apologize you received your plants not up to our standards. As we try our best to provide exceptional service, some factors like shipping and handling are outside of our control, and issues like this can sometimes happen. Please email pictures of the plant to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Rest assured, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!

Best online garden site

I've ordered plants from many online sites and Great Garden Plants is by far the best. Their prices a re very competitive, and the plants always arrive quickly, well-packed and healthy. Once in the ground, they thrive and grow quicker than any other online plants I've received. THRILLED to have found this site!

didn't survive

I was very excited about the 2 plants I purchased. One didn't make it through the winter, but the other appeared to be doing very well once spring rolled around. I had planned to replace the first one that died but this spring the second plant went backwards almost overnight. I don't think zone 4 is an accurate rating for this plant. Perhaps would do better in warmer regions but it didn't do well for me.

Hello! Thank you for leaving us feedback. We're so sorry that you've had trouble growing your rhododendron in zone 4. It's hard to say exactly why your plant has struggled. Most likely it is due to soil condition and watering. Again, we're sorry that your plant hasn't survived. Happy Gardening!

Didn’t survive

This is the only plant I have ever received from GGP that looked withered when it arrived, and did not survive after it was planted. All of my other purchases have been exceptional, and I’m sure this was just an anomaly. I have contacted customer service and plan to order something different as a replacement. I’m confident I will receive another quality plant.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We're so sorry to hear about your Rhododendron. Unfortunately, shipping can take a toll on some plants no matter how hard we try to protect them. Thankfully, this doesn't happen often! Our customer service team will be with you shortly. Thank you for your continued support. Happy Gardening!
