  1. They will be lush and full after your pruning. 🙂 I have a short shrub variety, and the rabbits help with my pruning. 😉

      I was so cautious the first time I pruned them but am (gently) brutal now! Hope your rabbits do the job properly 😉

    I always wanted to grow dogwood. Never got round to it. They add such great colour in the winter

  3. Cornus in winter are divine with their colors. Now it’s time to prune them so they grow bigger and better. With the fresh cornus branches you can make decorations with them by twisting them, making braids with the finest ones, making baskets by wetting them a whole night, …. I found some cornus branches where the pruning remains are thrown and I took them home . They were freshly cut. I tried to make a basket but it didn’t have too many branches. I made a braid and tied the edges with string until the wood dried: at least a month. I made small canes that I also tied with rope so that the shape of the handle remained. They do not lose their red color. I have them hanging in my room in the country house. If you haven’t compost them yet, you can try doing something with your wonderful creativity. Loving greetings from Margarita.
