The Common Dogwood (Cornus sanguinea) is a, fast-growing, hedging tree, putting between 30cm (1ft) and 45cm (1ft 6in) of new growth each year.  A non-evergreen, it is marked for its small, white, decorative flowers, which are produced during Summer, as well as small non-edible black berries, which form in late summer to autumn. Its most striking feature occurs during Wintertime when the leaves have fallen and strikingly beautiful red-orange stems are revealed.

Benefits of using our plug plant trees

Our Dogwood hedging trees are sold as plug plants, in other words the roots are encased in compost. This means that planting can be carried out at any time of the year, provided they are watered in periods of drought, compared to bare-root plants which can only be planted during the plants normal dormant period (November to March).  All of these trees are UK grown, which is important for successful establishment. 

How many Dogwood hedging trees do I need?

We recommend planting 4 plants per metre using the double staggered hedge method.

Delaying Planting Cell Grown Trees
If you cannot plant straight away, take the trees out of the packaging and stand upright next to each other in a sheltered location outside. November to March, no need to water unless they start to dry out. 

Site Conditions And Evergreen Tree List
Our tree chart details which site conditions suit which trees and also which are evergreen or semi-evergreen.

Feeding Or Fertilizing Hedges
Any nitrogen based fertilizer will do such as 20:20:10 but the longer lasting ones which take 18/24 months are better as they are regulated by the weather and moisture therefore release slowly. 

Second line of hedging or staggered row 
We recommend planting the second line of trees 25cm or 10 inches away from the first if using the staggered hedging approach. Consider buying 10% more than you need and plant the spares elsewhere so you have immediate replacements for damaged or diseased trees.

Hedge Protection
For all hedging protection please view the Tree Extra section.

You would think that thorny plants would put rabbits off from eating them however this is not the case. They are happy to take the pain regardless of the cost (sounds like rabbits would be suited to marriage) 

Hedge Growth Rates
For information on rates of growth please click "Hedge Growth Rates"

Using Bark or wood chip mulch for hedging trees
Mice like to use this as a nest/home/holiday retreat and they eat the bark (especially Beech). Periodically check for damage below the mulch or bark layer. Alternatively use gravel or plastic sheeting as a method of keeping weeds.

Adding Fragrance And Colour To Your Hedge.
Honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) is a very popular addition to any garden due to the strong fragrance, splash of colours and interest it generates from other wildlife. Click the link to find out more.

Coastal Planting
Trees suitable for coastal hedging include Aspen, Hawthorn, Holly, Juniper, Rowan, Whitebeam and Willows
.

Factors Detrimental To Cell Grown/Young Hedging Trees
Too much/little water, animal Urine, excessive wind exposure (will slow growth), salt spray, frost on new growth, herbicide drift and over application of fertilizer.

Hedge Tree Growing In The UK
We have instructed all our hedging trees that no non-UK holidays are allowed so that we can state they are all UK grown.
