I have 2 standard photinias (red robins) earlier in the year they began to loose their leaves I put this down to the amount of rain earlier in the year, they have put on some new growth but they do not look very healthy is there anything I can do to help them. Thankyou



Feed them something high in phosphorus, like Superphosphate, to help them toughen up the growth they've made.
If you normally trim them to a shape, do it in early July but perhaps a bit lighter than normal.
If they're growing in pots they would be a lot more vulnerable to all sorts of stressors like watering and insects, and even in the ground they don't seem to like being in a windy spot.
The good news is they'll probably be fine!
