Pruning a Photinia

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 20:57

Many thanks side the response KEF? 

would you advise taking a foot or so off the top and cutting the leggy branches that only have leaves at the end to half their size even if their are no buds or shoots?

Pruning a Photinia

HI,

We have three red robins which have just finished flowering but over the past year have become very thin and leggy. 

They are about 8-9 feet tall and when we initially planted them you could not see the fence behind.

 Would you advise us to give them a good prune now to encourage new growth?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as they are looking a little sorry for themselves.
