Slow Flowers' March Inspiration: Design with Flowering Branches

From the members of SLOW FLOWERS
Jump-start spring: Many flowering shrubs and trees are suitable for indoor forcing. You can cut the bare branches of forsythia, quince, witch hazel, magnolia, and numerous flowering fruit trees. Harvest branches when their buds begin to swell, taking care to use proper pruning techniques. Re-cut the stems on a 45-degree angle and place them in a vase of clean water. Over time, the buds will respond to interior temperatures and begin to flower. Be sure to change the water as you would with any floral arrangement.
Project Year: 2019
Project Cost: Less than $1,000
