Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

For new plantings
1. Dig a hole one and a half times wider than the plant's container
2. Place plant in hole, keeping the top of the root ball ground level
3. Back fill with dirt
4. Water thoroughly and then mulch around the base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds
New plantings require more frequent watering than established plants. Wind, temperature and soil are factors to consider in watering.
Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer, following label instructions.

Care Instructions
Water Dogwood Trees regularly, making sure the soil is consistently moist but not soggy. Prune them in late winter or early spring to maintain size and shape. Mulch around the Dogwood tree trunk in spring to help retain moisture. Keep the area around the tree free of weeds. Feed your Dogwood Tree once a year with a balanced fertilizer. Avoid pruning during the winter months as it can cause damage to the bark of the tree. Protect from strong winds and provide afternoon shade in hot climates.
