I have two Photinia Trees in my garden which have been there for at least 5 years, they have always done very well with plenty of growth but however this year they are looking very sparse with very little growth, they were pruned last Autumn. I would be grateful for any advice as to what may be the problem.
I was interested to read your question as mine are also more sparse than usual, though the leaves that are present are a very good colour. I'm inclined to blame wet and dry in the wrong seasons, plus dark and cold since April. i imagine they will recover, mine are abut the same age as yours so, with you, I shall await with interest to see if any experts know of any other reasons why this has happened.
Thanks for the advice, I am pretty sure that it must be to do with the very difficult weather that we have experienced this year. I await with anticipation for the summer !!to arrive and hopefully my Photinias will flourish.
My Red Robin tree which is 6 years old and about 10 feet high looks dead! It flowered earlier this year but then dropped most of the leaves, with those remaining looking brown and lifeless. It usually has leaves all the year round and I have never seen it in this state. Any ideas please.
