So happy to have chosen Cullen Nurseries to supply, plant and fertilize our new Red Robin hedge. Great customer service from Caitriona and really pleased with the very professional job Rob & his colleague did planting them. Pics don’t do them justice – this was the day they were planted – 61 x 2l Red Robins – really healthy looking plants. Delighted and looking forward to seeing them grow over the years. Thank you!

Benefits of Photinia Red Robin Hedging Plants to Biodiversity & Ecosystems

Planting a hedge of any type including Photinia Red Robin hedges in the garden is a great way to encourage biodiversity and preserve ecosystems. A hedge in the garden provides shelter, security and habitats for nesting birds, food for birds and insects and also acts as a network and mechanism for small animals to move around the garden and populate.

How & When to Plant Your Photinia Red Robin Hedging Plants

  • Photinia Red Robin Hedging plants are best planted from pots or a root ball in Ireland.
  • Therefore, we grow the plants in pots initially, which can be planted out in the garden.
  • Owing to the fact that the plants are grown in pots, they can be planted at any time of the year, as the root system has been established in the pot.
  • Potted plants are traditionally planted 12 inches apart to provide a fuller hedge in the quicker time frame. These strong bushy plants are so full that they can be planted 18 inches or even 2 feet apart and still provide that bushy full hedge.
  • If Red Robins are planted in a warm or dry period, they should be watered regularly to ensure growth.

Tips & Tricks for Looking After Your Photinia Red Robin Hedging Plants

  • Photinia will grow well in shade or in full sun.
  • They are ideal plants for most soil types and pHs but do not like very wet ground.
  • It is important to keep plants watered in the first year of growth.
  • They are frost-hardy and will survive in temps as low as -12C but should be protected from wind in the first year of growth. This can be done by erecting a green windbreak barrier.
  • Photinia Red Robin hedging plants are fast growing and will take a trimming well.
  • Trimming is usually done in late Spring or Summer when new growth appears on the hedge.
  • Trimming encourages new bushy growth.
  • When planting, make sure the area is clear of weeds to avoid competition for the plants.
  • Dig a trench or hole deep enough to cover the roots.
  • Remove the plant from the pot and place in the trench.
  • Be careful not to damage the delicate root system.
  • Break up the removed soil well to encourage aeration of the soil.
  • Shovel back in this soil and walk in the plant well.
  • Keep the plant well walked in for the coming weeks, especially after windy conditions.
