Forcing Spring Flowers
Bring it ON!! - With February almost to a close I find myself looking towards the blooms of Spring.
One way to make that happen a little faster is to force the blooms of spring flowering shrubs. Here I have cut some budded branches from a forsythia bush and placed them in a vase with water. The warmth of the indoors will cause the buds to open and give a taste of Spring a bit sooner. I will post a pic as soon as it does:) I have updated the picture. The blooms began to open about 8 days later and lasted for a bout two weeks.
