FORCING BRANCHES TO BLOOM

Posted on 9 February, 2015 at 15:30

How do you force branches so they bloom in the late winter or very early spring?

 

Forsythia, pussy willow, deutzia, wisteria, lilac, apple, peach, pear, eastern redbud, magnolia, quince, red maple, serviceberry, are just a few ideas for branch cuttings.

Instructions:

 

Select 12 inch long branches, 1/2 inch in diameter with lots of buds.

 

Prune all buds 6 inches from the bottom or any part you will be putting in water.

 

Cut the branches, under very warm water 1 or 2 inches from the bottom. You don't want the oxygen to get into the branch.

 

Make several slits on the bottom of this cut at severe angles. This encourages the absorption of water.

 

Place these branches in a vase or tub in a low to dark light area that is about 45 to 55 degrees for 2-3 weeks or until you see budding.

Make sure you mist the branches and change the standing water one time a week.

 

After the branches are budding bring them out into a room and place them in a vase out of direct sunlight or too close to a heating source. In 1 or 2 weeks you will have a beautiful flowering arrangement.

 

If you cut branches every other week, you can have long lasting color of spring in your late winter home.

 

Have fun. Enjoy the beauty.
