It's time to cut back the dogwood. Everyone from Monty on the popular UK Gardener's World to Mark's Veg Plot has been trimming back the dogwood.
The red stems of the dogwood shrub are really what makes it an attractive plant. It seems to be that the cutting back of the stems is what creates the vibrant red colour, which stays red and fiery over Winter.
But... unfortunately the red stems have to go ( I never look forward to the dogwood chop).
