Glad you posted as was worried about my photinia bush which is dropping a lot of leaves too. I've also had the black spots on the leaves for the last year or so. Your tree looks really lovely at the front there - hope it recovers ok!
Can anyone tell me what kind of soil they prefer? I've got a very alkaline soil and have been mulching with ericacious compost to try to reduce the PH. This is an attempt to improve the leaf colour which is very pale. Am I just fighting a losing battle with this plant??
(Hope you don't mind me asking here OP - was about to post but saw you had already asked similar q!)
