Red robin loosing leaves

Hello Paperpheasant and welcome

I'm afraid your Red Robin will be very unhappy indoors - it needs to be outside - the atmosphere indoors will be too dry and the light levels too low.  Photinia Red Robin can grow very big - it will be like a small tree - 15ft tall.  I would put it back outside - fix the pot so it can't blow away and hope for the best. 

If you want to grow plants on your balcony tell us a bit more about it, and perhaps we can make some suggestions of plants that will be happy there so you don't have to take them indoors.

Sorry, but I couldn't access the photos.  You can upload photos by clicking on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and following the instructions.  Sometimes it takes a while so be patient

Help yourself Flumpy - enough for everyone - dive in everybody

Hope Bushman's ok.  Keep safe and warm everyone.  Where's Pdoc?  Wonder how the stream through his garden is behaving   Whereabouts is LillyP - is it bad where she is?

Noggin the Nog and the Moon Mouse - to this day Ox-eye daisies are called Moon Daisies in this family

Two dozen cranberry mince pies in orange pastry were cooling in the kitchen ... note the use of the past tense ... OH is home from work

Noggin the Nog Fairy - the best tv programmes ever ever ever - and the books - Wonky will tell you - I had to read the books to them with exactly the same intonation as Oliver Postgate. 

Panda, snuggle up warm on the sofa and take something medicinal - pass this over to your OH
