When growing photinia in patio containers, use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in full sun. Alternatively, plant photinia standards directly into borders in any moist, free draining soil.
Feed and water container grown plants regularly. As plants increase in size they will require repotting into increasingly larger pots. To promote lots of young red foliage, prune photinia stems in spring, removing any damaged stems and shaping the head of the standard to a spherical shape. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of border grown plants. Avoid mounding mulch up around the stem as this may cause it to rot.
