The Dogwood Project
Saturday, March 5, 2011 2:00:29 PM
In the western part of my property I have some very beautiful bushes. By coincident I saw an article about "Dogwood multipleing by cuttings" and a photo of my bush
My bigest Dogwood:
My property is very nicely surrounded by trees beside 60m on the south side of my field. SO the project is to grow a Dogwood per 2.5m (30 all in all) at the south side of my field!
South side of field looking west:
I have made 30 cuttings following the description and planted them in big buckets, frost-free and plenty of sun around middle of February. In beginning of Marts the first sign of live showed.
This winter I lost both my parents so I choose to believe they live on in my growing Dogwood cuttings. I have selected one for each of them and named them Olaf and Lisa
I will take a photo often so we can see how they are coming!
