I have photinia in large pots on my deck. Several are showing chewed edges on the leaves and hole both in old and new growth. do you thin roseclear is the answer??



Shouldn't think so - Roseclear is for treatment of black spot which is a fungal disease. Could you put up a photo of the damage?

Spray with something systemic over here we use bugclear, and if the leaves are unsightly then prune these back and a new flush of foliage will be sent up.
