Is it normal for red robins to constantly shed their leaves? I have two of them and there is always a carpet of red leaves on the ground surrounding both shrubs. The larger shrub is very robust and healthy looking, the smaller, newer one, is the one with the burnt leaft tips in my previous question.

On plant Photinia



Mine does this in Feb/March but seems to have stopped now.Give it a liquid seaweed feed,mine is in a large pot so needs this occasionally.

Thank you Aster, I'll try this. I've never heard of seaweed feed - is it something that I can obtain easily?

Yes I just bought mine from a GC.
