|Brown leaf margins can indicate over watering or over fertilization. Some years dogwoods bloom well and others they don't. Sometimes you can encourage blooming by feeding with a 5-10-10 fertilizer in mid-summer. Be careful not to overapply fertilizer (check the package for correct rates based on the size of your tree) and broadcast it over the soil beneath the canopy of the tree. Hope this helps!
