How to Grow and Look after your Photinia

They grow best in fertile well drained soil in sun or partial shade.

They are tolerant of most soils even clay if it has been improved by well-rotted compost or manure.

If planting in an exposed windy site, the young shoots could get a little scorch.

Photinias require minimal pruning, a tidy up come spring and summer to keep the shrub looking tidy, if you are choosing this for a hedge then then remove the tips of young shoots to encourage the bright red leafy re-growth, this can be done upto 3 times a year. Try and avoid pruning after mid-August since any new growth could be vulnerable to frosts.

Photinia’s can get a leaf spot, it is not caused by disease or pest, just due to the cold wet weather that we often get. Keeping them fed with a general-purpose fertiliser such as Q4 or Growmore in spring / early summer will help encourage new healthy new growth.
