A website for gardeners has a piece with tips on how to grow a dogwood tree in a container. The writer states that these trees may have to be grown in a container if the gardener lives in an area that is too cold for the dogwood to survive the winter. The article advises putting the dogwood tree in a large container, as the tree’s roots grow quickly. It might be necessary to trim the roots. The tree should be stored indoors but in an unheated area so it can grow dormant. A photo of the tree is enclosed.
