Our pot grown Eddie's White Wonder Dogwood trees can be planted at any time of the year. Prepare the planting site by removing all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole. Then dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 1.5x as wide. To help Dogwood establish more effectively, especially if you have poor soil, we advise sprinkling root grow in the hole.
Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently, making sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree.
Only single stem forms require a staking kit. Finish with a generous amount of water at the base. For further information, visit our help and advice section.
Water well and regularly for the first spring and summer, increasing in periods of hot or dry weather. Avoid over watering as Flowering Dogwood doesn't like wet soil. When planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little. Take care to water the soil, not the leaves which can lead to scorching - irrigation kits help.
Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.
Most White Flowering Dogwood trees grow naturally into an appealing dome-shape. The only real maintenance in regard to pruning is to remove and damaged or diseased branches. The only time to hard prune a dogwood tree is to control the overall size or internal canopy or if there is not enough light reaching the inner branches.
To help ease these issues, cut off any crossing or over-crowding branches then continue to remove any secondary branches throughout the canopy. Only prune in the dormant season and never in spring. Pruning during spring can create entry points in the wood for insects which may lead to disease.
