Dogwood Plants - Planting Instructions

Sowing Time

  • Bare root planting is planted in the dormant season - October to March
  • Avoid frosty conditions, where the ground is frozen

Trench Preparation

  • Dig planting hole approx. 2ft wide & 2ft deep
  • We suggested adding farm yard manure to base of the trench
  • Lightly cover the manure with a layer of soil

Positioning Plants

  • For hedging, space plants 60-90cm apart
  • Stagger planting positions for a denser hedge
  • When planting - hold plants at ground level & back fill the top soil
  • Ensure each plant is straight & soil is compacted in around it's rootball
  • Level off the soil around the plants
  • Note: Cornus is often planted in 3 layers - to allow for hard cutting back of one layer every season

Handling the Plants

  • Be sure to water both before & after planting
  • When plants arrive, plant them straight away
  • If you are unable to plant straight away - then 'heel them in' temporarily
  • Keep plant's roots in their bag & avoid exposure to sun light
  • Take care not to damage roots, bark & buds

After Care

  • Water bare roots plants regularly until plants establish
  • Water before & after planting
  • If dry weather persists, water every 2 days
  • Weeding is also essential - especially bind weed which can quickly smoother a young hedge
  • A new hedge will need to be weeded at least 3 time over the growing season
    • Weed in March, June & September
    • We recommend using weed membrane & mulch to control weeds

Pruning

  • Dogwood needs to be pruned back hard every few years
  • This will encourage the growth of fresh red stems
  • This will also reduce the number of old dull stems
  • Dogwood can spread up to 4m so will need to be kept in check
  • Not suitable for small gardens
  • Don't prune in the 1st year
  • Prune back to about 1ft above ground level every 3 years
    • Prune in February/March
  • If you plant in layers you can cut back one layer each year
    • This guarantees good show of red stems - without loosing screening

Dogwood - Quick Facts

  • The wood of dogwood is very hard
  • It was used for arrows, charcoal & gunpowder
  • The word 'Sibirica' means from Siberia
  • This means Cornus Alba Sibirica is a native of Siberia & is therefore very hardy
  • It is the young, new stems of Dogwood that are bright red / yellow
  • This is a natural defense against sunlight
  • Other plants with interesting barks include the following...
    • Willow, Paper Bark Birch, Prunus Serulla, Acer Griseum, Arbutus, Betula Utilis
