Dogwood can be planted from November to March, when the hedge is dormant. Ensure that the area where you are going to plant the hedge is clear and weed-free.

Caring and Maintenance

Should be pruned in winter, just after planting, and for two years after that. On planting, cut back leading shoots and side shoots by one-third, cutting to a well placed bud. Repeat this in the second winter to prevent straggly growth and thicken up the hedge base. Then trim every June after that.

Maintain at 90-120cm (3-4ft).

"The delivery time said 3 -5 days but they took about 10 days to arrive. I bought them as a gift and apparently they did not look very alive when they arrived but I was told they were starting to look better after a couple of days in water"
