Who doesn’t love the pretty lovely happy look of spring blooms. It is Spring after all, but clearly it’s not spring-like enough in these parts. On a recent long walk on our trails around our home, first of it’s kind this season, we found little pockets of green leaves popping up. That was exciting. But still not enough…
The pruners for cutting, the f-i-l for carrying and the daughter for cheerleading. Mission accomplished. But still no spring.
Forcing branches is a great way to jump start spring. Obviously only in the northern parts where it’s needed most. Those of you who have been slapping colourful blooms for a month now, not to mention those of you where snow is never ever seen – this obviously wouldn’t apply nor would it be necessary. You see, for me this isn’t just necessary – it’s a another form of therapy because more snow is in the forecast ;) (and yes, my windows need a good wash ;0)
To get the real scoop of Forcing Branches read more here. But for the most part, most types of shrubs or trees that do bloom will force bloom nicely indoors. You’ll get pretty blooms in about a week’s time. Get cutting and enjoy waiting for your magnolias to bloom.
How do you bring in an early feel of spring?
