An Early Spring - Indoors!

Are you itching for some color from your garden in your home? Does it feel like spring will never arrive? You might be surprised what plants in your garden can provide an early bloom of spring in your home right now.

Many spring blooming shrubs can be forced with a little help from you. While forsythia is a classic example of a flowering shrub that can be forced during the winter, there are many other choices available. Consider your flowering crab and cherry trees, dogwoods, bridal veil spirea, even quince and witch hazel. It is easier than you might think.

For the how-to's, I encourage you to read this article posted on Better Homes &  Gardens website:

Then, grab a coat and some pruners and bring some spring into your home!
