About this deal

Choose a pot that’s approx 75mm wider than the existing tub. I’ve found that shallower but wider pots are more suitable than the narrower, deeper types, and drainage is essential, so there should be enough holes at the base.

Feed In describing the colors of evergreens, we enter the world of hue, tints, and shades of colors which challenge the Royal Horticultural Society Color Chart. Names of colors can be very misleading and cannot be depended on alone. Color can change with location, fertility, weather, age, etc., so that from year to year there is usually a degree of variability. The terms light, medium and dark are used to designate degrees of value and the term 'very' just extends the range. Names of colors from color horticultural color charts to industrial paint chips to artistic names have added to the confusion in defining a particular color or shade. For instance, the term 'Strong Red' has also been called grenadine, burnt orange, orange red, vermilion, scarlet, coral rose, red, coral red, etc. Evergreen azalea colors extend through all the red, orange red, pink, purple, white shades, with the quest for a true yellow evergreen still eluding us.
