CULTIVATION OF RHODODENDRONS IN A LARGE PRIVATE COLLECTION
The dedication of my gardener, Eddy Verboven, must be acknowledged here. His continuous concern and attention to all things relating to the estate is the major reason for its existence and growing reputation. With the exception of occasional outside contractors hired for major improvements, he is on his own, six days a week, fifty two weeks a year. He is clearly an exceptional man.
I have split up this description into six periods of two months each which seem characteristic of the various activities.
