Mature photinia, dying? (new hedge)
Hi, just after some advice and thoughts.
Our house has a 110 metre boundary with the road.
We asked a contractor to supply and plant about 200 evergreens, a mixture of laurel, yew and photinia.
Some plants were mature about 6 ft tall and most about 2 ft tall. The total cost was about £7k, for prep, supply and planting.
24 of these plants were 6 ft photinias. All of them have been dropping theor leaves, almost 70-80% gone, and show no signs of new red leaves.
All the other plants seem to be thriving, including the smaller photinias . These were planted about 6 weeks ago.
I spoke to the company and they suggested they hadn't been watered enough. I watered everything every 1-2 days.
Am I right to worry that they are dying?
Im not happy that no care instructions were given to me...
