Winter Homes for Young Potted Rhodies
I have a number of small, young rhodies in pots - large leaved, small leaved, deciduous azaleas and evergreen azaleas.
I've been told I should put the large leaved ones in the unheated garage for the winter. I'm questioning this now though because don't they keep their leaves over the winter so they can utilize the sun? No sun in the garage.
The deciduous azaleas I was going to put under our tables that get covers for the winter. That way they're a bit protected from the worst of winter and won't have standing water on them. I also have a "nursery" area that has sides and will probably put oak leaves and/or evergreen boughs over for protection.
Not sure what to do about the small leaved or evergreen azaleas that still have leaves. I do have a covered area near the house that would get some morning sun and would keep warmer from the heat of the house.
