Photonia Red Robin

Posted: 02/04/2014 at 08:04

We have a red robin tree that has been in the garden for 4 years and is about 5ft tall.  It is growing well but we would like to move it,  when is the best time to do this and what are its chances of survival.

Is my newly planted Quercus Ilex dying?

Further to my posts in May we thought the tree was starting to recover it produced loads of catkins early June and does seem to have a lot of new growth all over it.  However in the last week it has started to drop it's leaves again, they are not turning brown this time it is just dropping green leaves.  I realise that evergeen trees do drop their leaves but it was dropping maybe 1 or 2 a day and in the past week it has started dropping 20 ish a day.  Any ideas?

Hello ezageeza,  thank you for your answer although I hope you are wrong!!!  We did buy it this year but as far as we were told it has been grown in the UK and outdoors to make sure it is was hardy.

It does still have new growth on it I guess we need to see if the new growth continues to grow.

Hi Alina W thank you for your answer.  What do you mean by a reasonable size? and how long before we will know if it dying or not?

We recently purchased a Quercus Ilex Tree which was seven years old and grown in a pot.  It is about 12ft tall.  We planted the tree in a square hole and mixed the backfill with slow release fertiliser and bonemeal.  We have kept it well watered or at least the rain has until last week when we are on holiday for a week (when it was very hot and suuny), our neighbour watered the tree for us but probably only once.  In the seven days we were away about 80% of the trees leaves have turned brown and are falling off but during the same seven days it has produced a lot of very small catkin-type growths.  Is the tree dying or will it recover?  What can we do to help it?
