Temperatures Flowering dogwoodSole pieno
When the minimum temperatures are very low we can protec the more sensible brushes by covering their roots with dry leaves or straw. Let's grow the The Flowering dogwood in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.Let's grow the The Flowering dogwood outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.

Feed Flowering dogwood
To obtain a florid development it is important to remember to fertilize our shrubs periodically; in the spring letís use a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, which will favour the development of new vegetation and of flowerings. We can intervene at the end of the winter, mixing a good dose of slow release organic fertilizer to the soil surrounding our plant. During the spring it is also possible to act periodically, with liquid or powder fertilizers, to add to the water when irrigating, every 20-25 days.

Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 2-3 weeks can be enough using 1-2 buckets of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. If we decide to grow a specimen of the Flowering dogwood in a container, we should remember that it will have slightly different needs compared to a specimen grown in the ground: we should pay more attention to its water and nutritional needs and check more often for possible development of parassites.

Adversity Flowering dogwood
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
