I've seen these cherries in many gardens I've worked in and visited. The bark gets sicker looking, leaves turn yellow and bits of branch die back. No, they're not dead, and may not be for years, but are hardly items to beautify the garden.

No need to identify yourself HORTICO, all opinions and ideas equally valid here

I've got the gear. 

Snow is forecast for us, that would be difficult. No grit or clear up here.

Dry in the west may not be as dry as East Anglia though Verdun. We are DRY

Lovely to look at but I think I'll stick with the cornus

Thanks Verdun

Am I right in think witch hazels aren't going to thrive in my dry alkalinity?

Looking back some 25 years, I think that's why I chose the cornus over the hamamelis.

Yes, I hate that sort of damage. It seems to happen a lot with the ornamental cherries.

If you get another one, be very careful with mower/strimmer round the base. Not necessarily the cause of your problem but often guilty.

The rot on the left can only get worse.

I agree with your company's assessment

Edgeworthia is a bit borderline hardy here.

Cornus mas is looking as good as ever, a tree in theory but looks like a shrub to me.
