Too Late for Dogwood?

I completely forgot to cut back the dogwood! We left it last year as advised as it was new but were told to cut it back hard in March to ensure we get coloured stems next year.
As we’re coming up to the end of April is it too late to do it now?

It is really, but depending on how cavalier you’re feeling you could just go for it and see what happens.

Thank you. That about sums up my approach to gardening - give it a go and see what happens :laughing: Maybe the fact it’s been such a cold April means I might get away with it :woman_shrugging:t3:

I have a friend who didn’t get round to cutting hers down but now that it’s in leaf it looks lovely and is much more of a presence in the garden than a few stumps would be. Maybe you might want to choose to do that.

I have cut dogwoods down this time of year and they have come back fine. you could leave them though and cut them next year.
