Leaf spot on Red Tip Photinia

Anonymous added on August 5, 2015 | Answered

I have leaf spot on my very long Red Tip Photinia hedge. I can't get rid of it without spraying every two weeks. Spraying is not a good option because of windy conditions and very close neighbors. Is there any other way to control this?

Unfortunately, fungicide sprays are the norm, though the can be applied on days when wind is not a factor, and the usually cause little harm. Cleanup of plant debris is also important.
