rhododendron, feeding roses & repot tree

Anonymous added on April 13, 2017 | Answered

Hi! Q1, Rhododendron has brown crispy edges on some leaves that crack off , it shows ? white underneath before turning brown, what is this & how do I treat it? I have the miracle grow powder, how much do I mix with how much water? I am scared of poisoning the plant which I have re-potted & it is in a more sheltered area than before the re-potting. Q2, Shall I feed the rose bushes which are starting to show leaves, they are in pots, I changed the the top compost layer but not the entire pot. Q3, I would like to re-pot an small evergreen tree to a smarter pot, as we are now in spring & it appears to be waking up , is it okay to move it? Thank you.

I think the leaf damage is most likely environmental or sun scorch from winter.
The damaged leaves and branches can be pruned from the plant.

I would go ahead and repot the Evergreen now. Make sure not to use to large of a container. Just large enough to allow new growth.
Use good quality potting soil and make sure the container has adequate drainage.
