Forsythia forcing for indoor flowers
Who doesn't want spring flowers in their home in late February and March? This is the time, on a lovely sunny day like today, to pop outdoors and cut some branches from spring flowering shrubs like Forsythia and Quince. Not too many though or you won't get to enjoy them outside this spring. To get a head start on spring you can cut a few, recut the stem at an angle and put them in a vase of slightly hot water. I put them down in the basement for a few weeks but keep an eye on them and bring them into the warm of your house just as they start to open up.
