Welcome DrGreenThumb.  I'm not keen on adding fertilisers if soil,is in good heart and rich in humus. I think it produces too lush growth.  However, check how your plants are......if signs of poor growth you can add organic fertilisers like fish blood and bone.

Hiya jack, I take the time to trim all dead shoots....usually they are on the ends of stems........back to healthy buds every spring.  This makes a visible difference to the plant.  I'm very fussy about doing this.

True dogwoods are adaptable but for best strong upright wood good living helps
