Cornus Alba Dogwood Hedging
Cornus Alba Dogwood Hedging 60-100cm
Cornus alba (Siberian dogwood) is a fast growing shrub grown for its vivid red winter stems and lush green summer foliage.
Clusters of small white flowers appear in June.
Used for mass planting or an informal mixed hedge.
Planting season is between November and late March while the plant is in dormant growth. Dig a reasonable hole and plant with either some rose or tree compost or any organic matter (but not fresh manure, well rotted is fine) and plant with some bone meal or fish, blood and bone as this will encourage quick root growth. Do not water once planted (unless the ground is very dry) so the plant will find it's own water (make it work for it's water, creating strong root growth). Plant 4 per metre in a staggered row (in a double row 50cm apart and the rows 30cm apart). Clipping the top leader on planting to encourage bushy growth.
These plants will grow in any soil, in sun or shade.
Each plant is 60-100cm and bare root.
These are transplants not seedlings.
