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.

It would have been of use if there had been instructions on how to store the plants if they couldn't have been planted immediately.

Easy to order PROMPT DELIVERY. Quality healthy plants .Packed well. Have ordered before and was satisfied plants are growing well . My only gripe is I would have liked the plants to come labelled with plant names expected height, width and habit as garden centres do. Would save keep referring to internet.

On 04-Oct-2016 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback and I'm sorry to hear that some of your plants were not to the advertised height. If you would be so kind as to send through an image or two detailing this (preferably with some kind of scale) we would be happy to look into this further for you.
