Q.Digging Up Red Robin Photinia With Black Spot, Can I Plant New Tree In Same Soil?

Zone UK | SusanC added on April 11, 2020 | Answered

I have decided to get rid of a number of Red Robin as black spot has spread and all leaves have been falling for some time. I am looking to replace with some Flamingo willows but worried about the soil. Grateful for any advice as I am new to gardening. Thanks

As long as the tree that you choose is not closely related, then it should pose no problem. I don't think that it will affect your new choice, but just in case you may want to treat your soil with a fungicide/bactericide.
