Rhododendron

Anonymous added on June 14, 2011 | Answered

Need to cut back rhododendron bush. It's up against the house and getting too tall. When and how should we do this? Also, we have a peach tree that bloomed last year, but is showing no signs of fruit this year. We have not done anything to this tree. We live in central Illinois.

This article should help with your rhododendron: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rhododendron/pruning-rhododendrons.htm

As for the peach tree, this sounds like a pollination issue. If the flowers are not pollinated, the tree will shed them when they are small. These articles may help you:
