I was trying to wrack my brains as to what you meant by a quarter! 

 Think my phone tried to tell you all about a 'coiled American football player'   I changed the 'b' to a 'p' and didn't delete the 'quarter'

No!  strange auto correct stuff going on with my phone - coil pack - not a quarter anything involved.  

I'm home now

Lush growth in the winter (wet and cool) creates the perfect conditions for fungal/bacterial infections - it's also more likely to get damaged by frost.

Dogwoods. I've seen acres of the things in municiple plantings and on new estates.

See original post

 And  so often 'groundsmen' cut them back in the autumn so losing the gorgeous winter colour - I had to keep an eye open for the groundsmen visiting my workplace and keep them away from the dogwoods, promising that I would cut them back at the right time.  In the end we laminated a notice saying Do Not Prune and hung it on the branches every autumn!
