Now is a great time to start pruning hardwoods and take cuttings. If there is one plant that I love and hate at the same time it’s Dogwood (Cornus).
They look amazing when cut down at the right time of year promoting those wonderful red or yellow canes in the wintertime. Not cut down they just look like an uncared for bush and you wonder why anyone would want to grow them.
So the job for this week, if you have Dogwood, is cut them down to their base to promote strong new canes and great winter colour.
