Pink Dogwood Memorial Gift Tree
Watering: Water dogwood twice a week. Sun: Dogwoods like a few hours of full sun and afternoon shade. Pruning: Dogwood require little pruning. You can prune them in late winter; remove any dead or broken branches.
Plant dogwood in the Spring, in moist, well drained, slightly acidic soil. Dig a hole three time the width to allow for root expansion, and equal depth. Water the soil before placing dogwood into the ground. Place dogwood into the ground and fill hole back with the soil.
During fall and winter Dogwoods will enter its dormant state. During this time the leaves will fall off and the stem will turn brown. The roots of your Dogwood will continue to grow during this time.
Potting & Container
Dogwoods have very dense, fast growing roots systems. This requires more care when keeping in a pot/container. They need well drained soil and lots of water for the first few years. Select a container that is at least twice the size of the Dogwood. You can add a layer of mulch to the top to help retain moisture.
I know that you put a lot of thought into the special gift. Our apologies for the less than top quality condition that the tree arrived in. I truly understand and know it can be frustrating. The dogwoods have extremely delicate leaves and root system at this very young age. Unfortunately, they do not do well with the extreme weather conditions at this beginning stage of growth. It could have been the heat wave the entire nation has recently felt during transit that caused your tree to look less than stellar.
Our apologies for the less than stellar condition that your tree arrived in. After some time to rehydrate, we hope the tree will begin to thrive and bounce back. However, we do offer a guarantee on our products.
We want the healing process to continue and for them to have the living tribute as you had intended. We only ship our Dogwoods once a year, and unfortunately, they are sold out for this year. However, if need be we can replace it with ANY other tree of your choice from the website.
Again, my most sincere apologies and I know this is not to our standards, or your expectations.
I hope to be able to re-earn your trust and business. We want to make this right for you and the recipient family, especially during this time of loss.
