Planting & Care
Planting Instructions: Versatile and adaptable, the Photinia doesn’t need much (especially since it acclimates to most soil types and tolerates drought), but there are a few tips to keep in mind.
When it’s time to plant, choose an area with at least 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day and well-drained soil. After scouting your location, dig a hole that’s at least two to three times wider than your Fraser’s root ball. Once you’ve placed the shrub, back fill its soil, tamp down to avoid air pockets and lastly, water to help establish its roots.
Watering: It’s drought tolerant, but one thorough watering is advised weekly, until your Fraser is established. If you’re not sure when to water your Fraser Photinia Shrub, simply check the surrounding soil, down to around 2 or 3 inches. If the Fraser’s surrounding soil is dry, it’s time to water.
Fertilizing: In most soils, especially those that are rich in nutrients, the Fraser Photinia requires little additional fertilizer. But if you notice slow growth, apply a well-balanced, slow-release fertilizer.
Pruning: Pruning encourages the production of new red growth and a neat silhouette; however, for best results, prune in late winter. The Fraser responds well to shearing but tends to thin out at the bottom due to the lack of sunlight that reaches that area, though this isn’t a cause for concern.
