Pruning dogwoods

Mimi Meyer asked 13 years ago

hi Gerry, I planted dogwoods last May this year and I’d like to ask when it is the best time to prune them to make it spectacular during winter. I need help please. Thanks and hope to hear from you. Kind regards.

Young dogwood plants should not be pruned for several years. Then, if necessary, to keep them to a neater size they can be pruned in late winter or early spring. This will encourage new growth, which shows the best bark colour.
