Planting Guide:

Location: Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It can grow in most soil types, but it thrives in fertile soil that is slightly acidic. It is also important to choose a location that is sheltered from strong winds, as the plant's leaves can be easily damaged.

Planting: 'Red Robin' can be planted at any time of the year, but it is best to plant it in spring or autumn when the soil is moist and the temperatures are mild. Dig a hole that is twice the size of the plant's root ball and mix in compost or well-rotted manure to improve soil fertility. Place the plant in the hole and backfill with soil, firming it down around the plant.

Watering: Water the plant regularly after planting until it establishes itself in the soil. Afterward, it can tolerate some drought but still needs regular watering during dry periods. Avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot.

Pruning: Prune 'Red Robin' in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Trim off any dead, diseased, or damaged branches and shape the plant to the desired height and width.

Fertilizing: Apply a balanced fertilizer in spring to encourage healthy growth and development. Follow the instructions on the packaging for the recommended application rate.

Pest and Diseases: Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' is generally resistant to most pests and diseases. However, it can be susceptible to leaf spot and fungal diseases in humid conditions. Regularly inspect the plant for any signs of damage and treat it promptly if necessary.
