What s the best way to get a CORNUS Sibiricus thats really got out of hand back to a nice shape and for the colour for next winter


On plant Cornus



Cut hard back to ground level in April. The new growth can be thinned out in September. Don't overfeed, a dressing of Blood, Fish and Bone is all it needs.

As soon as the buds show signs of green, get in there and cut it back really hard. If you leave it for a couple of weeks, it will be too late
