What do I do now?

Leylandii won't regrow out of brown wood.  If they got pruned back beyond the green (yellow) growth, they will not resprout.  April is the wrong time for trimming them, a light trim in summer is all they need if the tops are out.

Have you got a photo?

Stop feeding it. It is making leaf and no flowers. Treat it mean for a bit.

What sort of trees are they? Certain trees must be cut at appropriate time of year or they bleed sap, or infection gets into cuts.

Its hawthorn rust.

A fungal disease, the leaves look bad, may fall off, but the plant will recover.

Depriving plants may make them flower the third year instead of the second. I think if you just plant then in the soil now, you will get better plants than pot growing , and better flowers next year. If you dont have space where you want them , any spare bit of veg patch, even shaded,  will do.
