Re: New bed

    Be careful around your dogwood--its roots are shallow. I don't believe
mulch will do much harm. Don't rototill because many roots will be damaged.
    I have grown under my dogwood for over 5 years and last year was the
first time I saw significant change (higher amount of dead  limbs and less
flowering for a shorter time).
