Let me start off by saying that I know next to nothing about gardening...
I live in Oklahoma. I bought a rhododendron because I thought it looked pretty, dug a hole in the ground, and planted it. The nursery people told me that this was NOT what I was supposed to do. So, according to their recommendations, I dug a large hole - mixed, fine pine, peat moss, and pecan hulls with the existing soil - filled the hole back up - sat the rhododendron bulb on top of the soil - and then built up to it using what I had left. At that time, it was getting morning sun from about 9am-3pm.
Soon, the leaves started to turn brown. So, I moved it to almost full shade (same soil, good drainage, etc.). It had some new growth, but eventually the leaves starting turning brown again. Now, it has only about 3 green leaves left. Is it beyond resuscitation? Any ideas??
