I pruned our very large Photinia last September which was clearly the wrong thing to do. All the new shoots have died and it’s looking pretty bad. I don’t know whether to remove it completely or attempt to revive it. Any suggestions greatly appreciat

    Hi Debbie. I would leave it a little longer and watch for signs of new growth.

    That'll be frost damage.  I agree with LB4 - wait a few weeks for signs of new growth below the damage and then prune back to the new buds but not on a day when more frost is expected.
