Forcing Spring to come a bit early

Post  camprn on Fri Jan 13, 2012 1:09 pm

If you are in the North and just cannot wait for spring flowers, you could try forcing some flowers into bloom. Cutting stems of forsythia, cherry, apple or quince Forcing Flowering Branches and the lovely paper whites, daffodil, hyacinth and crocus Forcing Spring Flowering Bulbs.


41 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Great post. Great idea. I don't think enough people force flowers for inside their houses. I know I don't.
