Rhododendrons are part of Benmore’s history. In the early 20th century, plant collectors such as George Forrest, Ernest Wilson and Joseph Rock brought back hundreds of new plants to Britain, including many new species of rhododendron. In the 1920s and 1930s, hundreds of rhododendrons were grown in the Edinburgh Nursery and then transferred to the wild wet mountainside in Argyll.
