Care advice for Orange Dogwood hedging

Orange Dogwood benefits from a ‘less is more’ trimming approach. Dogwood Cornus sanguinea does not need pruning in its first year. After that, it should be cut right back to approximately a 4 inch ”base from the ground. By pruning this much in February/March, before the buds appear, it encourages the brightly coloured shoots that make Cornus sanguinea so popular. Please view the Best 4 Hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section.
