How can I encourage my pieris to be as brightly red as my neighbours' plants.  Mine is several years old, looks very healthy, always produced some red shoots but never many.  Is it the pruning?

The red shoots are simply new shoots, so it sounds as though yours isn't producing many.

My first thought would be to try feeding it?

Don't prune it!

Thank you.  I'll give it more food.
