(Cornus florida) are deciduous trees native to the eastern half of the United
States. These trees can add year-round beauty to the landscape. Let’s look at
how to grow dogwood trees. Flowering dogwoods range in color from white to pink
or red and generally bloom for about two to four weeks in early spring. They
also add summer and fall color, with rich green foliage color in summer and
reddish purple leaves during fall. This is oftentimes followed by brilliant red
berries in winter. Proper dogwood care will bring these lovely trees to their
height of beauty.
their natural habitat, dogwoods are understory trees, which are generally
surrounded or protected by other larger trees. Therefore, when caring for
dogwood trees, this should be considered carefully before placement in the
landscape. Locating these trees on the edge of wooded areas or in groups is
oftentimes more suitable to their natural surroundings. They can also be used
as a backdrop for azaleas or other spring-flowering shrubs. Flowering dogwoods
can be grown in sun or shade; however, trees planted in partial shade generally
perform better. Trees planted in full sun can be stressful, making them more
susceptible to dogwood borers and heat stress. For care of flowering dogwood
trees, dogwoods that are planted in full sun must also rely on frequent
watering, especially during hot conditions. While dogwoods will grow in a
variety of climates and soil conditions, they typically grow best in, and even
prefer, well-drained, humus-rich soil that is slightly acidic.
you are starting dogwood seed propagation, you’ll need to soak the seeds in
water for a couple of days. All non-viable seeds will float to the top of the
water and should be removed. Soaking makes it a snap to remove the external
pulp, expediting dogwood seed germination. You can rub the pulp off by hand or,
if necessary, by using a fine wire screen. As soon as the soaking and pulp
removal is done, it is time to plant. Prepare a seedbed with well-draining
soil, or a flat with well-draining medium. For best dogwood seed germination,
plant each seed about .5 inches (1.25 cm.) deep and 1 inch (2.5 cm.) apart in
rows 6 inches (15 cm.) apart. Cover up the planted soil with light compost like
pine straw to hold in moisture. Propagating dogwoods from seed isn’t an
overnight event. It takes time before you witness dogwood seed germination, and
you’ll usually see the new seedlings appear in spring following an autumn
How to Care for
Most dogwoods require supplemental water during summer and fall,
especially during hot, dry spells. For care of flowering dogwood trees, regular
watering once a week to a depth of 6 inches should suffice. However, adding a
generous layer of mulch will help retain moisture, minimizing watering chores.
Most established trees do not require fertilizer. However, if you do choose to
fertilize young dogwoods, use only a small amount of slow-release fertilizer.
Dogwood trees seldom need pruning; however, it may be necessary to remove dead
or injured branches, suckers, and diseased or insect-infested parts on
occasion. Shaping trees may also help keep them more attractive looking.
Flowering dogwood trees are considered “bleeders,” which means they bleed sap,
if pruned during late winter. Summer is an ideal time to take care of any
pruning tasks that may be needed since these plants do not bleed sap during
this time. Once established in the landscape, caring for dogwood trees is
relatively easy. As long as they have been planted in the proper conditions and
location, the overall care of flowering dogwoods is minimal.
All seeds will come in a resalable
plastic zip lock bag wrapped in a protectant so the seeds are not damaged by
shipping machines. All seed packets contain no fillers or other weeds or seeds
mixed in. Most have been harvested by hand & all test at a high germination
counts should be considered estimates as the seeds is packaged by hand, there
is 2-3 more or less in a bag. We do our best to ensure accuracy and will
often add extra seeds. However, all estimates are final.
Seeds will ship without tracking numbers. Items
will be shipped 1-3 business days of receiving payment. Plants will be shipped
via USPS. Shipping usually takes anywhere from 3-5 days.

fix the problem as soon as possible.
Important, Please read
All seeds have been test sown to ensure germination.
Please familiarize yourself with growing conditions and instructions for your
seeds before you plant them, as all seeds are different. Basic growing
instructions can be found under each listing.
We Cannot Guarantee how much you will be able
to grow, as too many variables come into play, soil condition, your ability to
garden, weather etc. I guarantee that they arrive as described and are in good
viable condition and the germination rates are accurate.
