My dogwood arrived and it was packaged well. Roots protected and kept moist with damp newspaper. I planted it as I was supposed to and it seems to be ok. The March weather has been rather wet this year, so I’ve had to really monitor the water situation. Some nice, promising buds on the tree. Hopefully, it will make it.
