Early Spring Blooms indoors

Bring the blooms indoors

We can bring early spring indoors, by cutting a few branches of trees and shrubs, and have them bloom early indoors.

Here is what to look for:

Azalea, beauty bush, crab apple, flowering quince, magnolia, pussy willow, redbud , serviceberry, witch hazel, forsythia, rhododendron, spirea, and fruit trees : cherries, pears, and apples.

If you can cut the branches in a warm day look for swollen, plump buds. Cut branches at an angle and be sure you cut them long enough to stand out in your container. To get water quickly to branches smashing the bottoms of your branches gently, will make it easier for the branches to take up water. For these young buds to go through the transition place your container away from sunlight, in a cool location.

Whitin 1 – 6 weeks you should see the buds swell and begin to open, and ready to be placed in sunlight.
