Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a planting site for your Summer Splash™ with well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight with some afternoon shade).
Dig a planting hole for your dogwood that is two times the width of your tree’s root ball and just as deep. Place your tree in the planting hole, keeping the top of the root ball even with the ground. Backfill your soil, water to settle the roots, and tamp down the surrounding soil.
Finally, mulch around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture.
2. Watering: Water your tree weekly or check the surrounding soil for dryness. If your soil is dry about 3 or 4 inches down, water the area.
FGT Tip: Lighter green leaves are a sign of overwatering, while drooping leaves can signal underwatering.3. Fertilizing: Dogwood Trees do not require feeding, but if you use fertilizer, feed your tree in April or May with any general-purpose fertilizer.
