Spring is in the house!

Spring is in the house!

This one’s like a magic trick. A simple (looking) stick – or wand, if you will – placed in water at the end of January sprouts flowers by the time February arrives! There are a handful of flowering shrubs, most famously Forsythia and Pussy Willow, which you can encourage to bloom indoors weeks ahead of their natural schedule. From your garden, cut a long stalk (at least 12″), place in a vase in a warm spot and wait impatiently!

Shrubs to try this with:

  • Azalea
  • Beautybush
  • Forsythia
  • Magnolia
  • Pussy Willow
  • Redbud
  • Rhododendron
  • Spirea
  • Witch Hazel
