When I met him last year, I bought his book, which he signed with a dedication.
I grow azalea, rhodies and blueberries, should have no problem, are they typically under story shrubs?
In your location— you can do it!
I have Ostbo Red and Olympic Fire. I think the one in the photo is Ostbo Red but I’ll have to take a closer look. It has been in the ground 20+ years and has never been fertilized or pruned. It has stayed healthy and bushy.
Nice long-lived specimen.
I tried to transplant Olympic Wedding twice— killed the plant both times. That was when I didn’t know what I was doing.
You can grow the shrubs.
