Answer

Cut the branches of forsythia, spirea, spicebush, quince, pussywillow and other early blooming trees and shrubs for forcing indoors. If you can keep them in a cool place and change the water at least once a week they will last longer and you will be rewarded with beautiful blooms for a few weeks. Try spacing your cuttings at two-week intervals so you will achieve a continual succession of flowering, thereby extending the indoor display well into late winter.
