Yes, the water has dropped by about 8". BUT the hole was almost full of silt, and was VERY squelchy when I stuck my fork in, so I have filled it up with compost and I'll have to wait a while before I actually plant them. I put the pots on to check the spacing. I reckon they'll look good there, don't you?

They look lovely, Spritz. Glad your water problems have diminished.

...as long as the grasses don't try to smother them! You should see the grass roots! Thick, white, very deep and not able to pull them out. I dug out as many as I could, but they are bound to return!

from what i have read about Cornus, they don't have a problem holding there own, i should imagine they'll be fine :-)

wow spritz they look fantastic do they stay that colour for the winter?

Yes - you cut the stems back each year in the spring, and they grow back in time for the winter!
