I would like to grow either rhodendrons or azaelea’s along and arond its base, is this possible? I have very little growing in my front yard everything seems to die, I have put it down to the jacaranda tree/s. I have always had success with my day lillies but even they are dying. I love the jacaranda tress and would like to keep them I also would like to fill my garden up with big flowering shrubs. Any help would be greatly appreciated or directions on where I can look to help improve my soil or make a nice garden.
