When should I plant Photinia Red Robin hedging?
The best time to plant your Photinia hedging is any time from autumn through to spring, as long as the ground is not frozen.
How far apart do you plant Photinia Red Robin plants?
If you are wanting to create a lovely, dense hedge quickly, individual plants should be spaces around 75cm apart. If you are growing it against a wall or fence, however, ensure the plants are at least 60cm away from the wall.̴Ì?
How to plant your Photinia Red Robin:
Ensure you have chosen a full sun or partially shaded position. If the soil is heavy or easily waterlogged, be sure to add plenty of well-rotted compost to the area and you dig it in well.
Dig a hole that is twice the width of the root ball and sprinkle some bone meal into the ground. Plant the Photinia into the hole and fill it back up with soil. Carefully, but firmly, press down the soil around the base. Water the plants nicely and regularly for the first year after planting, to help the roots establish.
