Common Dogwood Hedge - Cornus sanguinea

Common Dogwood (Cornus sanguinea) hedging is a very easy way to add a burst of colour into your hedge during the winter months. From red canes to yellow canes, Dogwood shows off its beauty while others are dormant. The 3 types we stock all flower white/cream in spring with blue or white berries in early autumn. Green oval leaves appear covering up the colourful stems which turn red in autumn.

Its best to plant Bare Root hedging in a double staggered row, and Pot Grown / Rootballed hedging in a single row.

Plant Spacing:
Bare Root. When planting smaller (60cm and below) plants you will need 6 plants per metre, and for the medium size (60cm and above) you will need 5 per metre, and for the larger size (90cm and above) plants you will need 4.5 per meter. 

Pot Grown / Root Balled. When planting smaller (80cm and below) plants you will need 5 plants per metre, and for the medium size (80cm and above) you will need 4 per metre, and for the larger size (120cm and above) plants you will need 3 to 3.5 per meter.
