Forcing Forsythia

 It's that time of year that I'm dreaming of warm weather and Spring.   For the past few years, I have forced forsythia inside so I can enjoy their yellow blooms before they bloom outside.  
To do this cut a few branches off of the bush making sure that those branches have buds on them.
Bring them inside and cut the tips off again and immediately put them in warm water.
It will take them approximately 4 days to a week to bloom depending on what time of year you cut them.
 Above I cut smaller branches but cutting larger branches also creates a unique arrangement.
Happy Weekend!
