Evergreens should be moved either in September/October or in March/April. If moved in spring then they will have less time to re-establish a root system before summer, watering will need to be particularly vigilant. Don’t feed the plants when they have first been moved, allow them to establish first, before feeding them with a general fertiliser.
With regard to Photinia, it can be pruned in spring if necessary, by cutting back any old, damaged or misplaced stems to a new shoot lower down the stem. Tip pruning the stems all around the plant by 15cm (6”) will also encourage the production of lots of brightly coloured, young growth.
