Why has my previously healthy pieris started to get brown flowers which then die followed by browning of the leaves no sign of aphids



probably been caught by frost - that's what happens to new leaves in spring, although the flowers, not so much, though if the frost is heavy, they might. Otherwise, the flowers brown and fade naturally after a week or two. This assumes that your plant is in the ground, has been there for longer than two years, and isn't suffering drought.
