Help in planting a rhododendron.
My mother is moving in the spring next year and lucky me, seriously, get all the plants she wants to save. She has a beautiful rhododendron bush she wants me to take. I have always heard that these do best on the north side of the house. Is this true and why. I am not able to plant things on the north side of the house because of the dogs. Can I plant them on the north side of a privacy fence? I want this bush to perform for her so want it to be planted in the best possible spot.
