Care advice for Cornus alba 'Sibirica'

Vivid Red Dogwood benefits from a ‘less is more’ trimming approach. It does not need pruning in its first year. After that, Cornus alba 'Sibirica' should be cut right back to approximately 4 inches from the ground. By pruning this much in February/March, before the buds appear, it encourages more brightly coloured shoots.  Alternatively, if that's too drastic for you, prune every other plant so you retain some height for the summer but achieve the good stem colour in winter. Please view the Best for Hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section.

Pot grown and cell grown plants are available year round and make a great option when planting a hedge. Pots come in various sizes, as do the plants grown in them, and can be planted when convenient for you. These plants will be happy in their pots, given enough water, until you’re ready to plant. Cell Grown plants are usually small, 10-30cm and a great step between Pots and Bare Roots.

Bare root hedging plants are extremely popular. They are delivered and should be planted during the dormant season (usually November to April) and can be pre ordered from mid-summer. We recommend pre-ordering where possible to reserve your plants but take new orders right the way through the season. Bare roots are a cost effective way of planting a new hedge.

Root balls are generally available from October through to April/May, though some species are available year round. The plants are field grown and then lifted with a ‘ball’ of soil around the roots that is secured with hessian and sometimes wire. Root balls are often very impressive plants that can be pre ordered from mid-summer.
