Cornus (china girl) brought two years ago hasn't come on at all. But due to the nicew weather it looks like its got through the winter. Please How When How to feed. It looks like a tree, I mean it's tall & thin not bush. Do they come in tree forms or bushes? Thank you.



Most Cornus become large shrubs eventually. You could work in a little dressing of Growmore around the base, but they are not hungry feeders.

This one's actually a small tree (Cornus kousa) - it dislikes chalky soils, but otherwise isn't too fussy.
