Not the best position umder a fir free.  Not too many plants like the needle drop.  Clearly the soil is acidic enough......possibly even too acidic.  I know that sounds odd but do a ph test there.  

I would move it

Photinia Red Robin pruning?

Hiya godsmate.....you have friend's in very high places!

Well, could be a number of things.  Look at those leaves.  Is there some webbing?  Is there a little caterpillar there?  Varieties of the tortrix moth make their homes in leaves and "stitch" the leaves in a sort of cocoon.  Check that first.

That would be my first suspicion

The beauty of a garden plan indoors is that you can work on it during the winter months....tinker, experiment, etc work,out plant associations all from the comfort of your armchair

Munzie, sounds like you are getting the beginnings of mould from the overhead tree.  (aphids on tree leaves depositing on your camelia)  Is it a sycamore, by any chance?  In a sunnier position is not ideal.

Any chance of moving it away from the tree and maybe to a shadier spot?
