When Do You Force Forsythia? Now is the Time

Now is the time. Go out and cut as much forsythia as you want. The plant grows like a weed and for each cut, you'll be rewarded with long straight stems for the next winter's forcing. Put the forsythia in a vase, wait a week or two and you'll have flowers, wait longer and you'll get green leaves.

I like to do this too. Our single digit temps might have nipped some buds the past couple of days. UGH
