Q.Dogwood Trees

Anonymous added on April 27, 2014 | Answered

I planted five dogwoods last fall – three pink and two white. I followed the planting instructions meticulously. I understand they are easy to grow. All five of them failed to bud this spring and appear to be dead. What could be the cause?

Did you have a bad winter, as much of us did? Unusually cold weather could have damaged the trees and subsequent buds. Generally, if the trees survived, they will slowly recover, though blooming may not occur this season. This article should help determine whther your trees are still alive: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm You should also check for any signs of pests, such as dogwood borers, which may affect these trees.
