Hi addict, good to see you. 

Last weeks storm counrty round up

sticks all over the garden but nothing serious.  The wind was frightening at times but nothing big fell over and all buildings are intact.

I fear those on the east coast have had a rough ride.  Some devastating wind and tides there 

Best dogwoods for stem colour

I have reservations about Midwinter Fire. It's a stunning colour but it's not robust like some of them. I get bits of die back at the ends of stems and the spring leaf colour is uninspiring. Maybe it's my soil and not the fault of the shrub though.

Could we have a photo of what it looks like now? If it only has branches at the top it will looks silly cut off as Welshonion says. If it has branches all the way down you can prune to the shape you want.

Anemone Coronaria

I don't have much success with these. I thought it might be because they get thrown out with weeds but I wonder if I planted too deeply. I can't remember how deeply, I haven't tried them lately.

I don't know what strulch is

That's a shame, a bit rude as well to interview and not let you know
