Question
Tom hi I would like to grow forsythia in my home from
Cuttings.  If I put cuttings in water now will they have roots by spring. I live in NY
Thank you Kenny

Answer
Hi Kenny,
Thanx for your question.  I've never tried to force forsythia this time of year.  I'm not sure that the blooming buds are developed enough to do that.

I did some research and I found a link where an individual is claiming that he does this.  Have a look and see if it helps.

Thanx,
Tom

Expertise

I have been growing plants from seeds for at least 20 years. I have grown literally hundreds of different kinds of vegetables, trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, tropicals, some cacti, water plants, iris, rose, lilies, cannas, etc. I enjoy starting from seed.

Experience

I've been growing my own seeds for 20 years with indoor propagation equipment I built myself. I am also an Allexperts volunteer on the perennial forum. I have completed the Master Gardener course through the Kansas State University Extension. I have experience with a wide variety of seeds and I have also read through Norm Deno's books on seed germination.
