Q.Dying photinia

Zone Derby DE22 2UR | Tony Bennett added on April 28, 2017 | Answered

I planted 9 dwarf photinia 12 months ago. Started by digging a trench a filling it with a soil and general compost mix. The leaves on 7 of them have recently gone all red and the photinias seem to be dying. They are exposed and are planted alongside a pavement and road (see photo). Can you advise what will have caused this problem and whether there is anything I can do to save the plants. Many thanks
