DOGWOOD SAPLINGS

Planting Flowering Dogwoods

As with most trees, spring is the best time to plant flowering dogwoods before tree growth starts when the air is cooler and the ground moist. The method for planting dogwoods is, as well, the same as for most other trees. The planting hole should be at least three times the diameter of the root and just deep enough so that the root protrudes slightly from the surface to allow for settling. To work compacted soil, try digging a deeper hole and then back filling to the necessary depth. Never plant the tree deeper than the exposed roots. Once the tree is seated in the hole, back fill using the original soil or a half and half mixture of soil and organic material. Once the tree has been planted, cover the soil surrounding the tree with a layer of organic mulch. Fertilizing is generally not necessary unless the soil is very nutrient deprived.
