    I will be planting new rhodos next week... looking for any tips on planting info. Do they like any kind of manure mixed in with the topsoil, or anything? How much water should a newly planted rhodo like? Also, what's the best way to keep rhodos healthy looking and disease free on an ongoing basis? Any secret tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

    This should get you started: Harold Greer's articles on Rhododendron Basics.
    It is past prime rhododendron planting season here in Langley, wait until fall, if you can.
