I heard you can take a forsythia branch and it will take root in a bucket of water. I would like to have this bush in my yard. Can it be done this way to start the root process?

Yes, you can start forsythia in a glass of water. It's best to use water that is not chlorinated. Do you have any creek water or well water available? Once the roots are established, and just before planting dip the roots into root hormone which can be bought at Walmart in the lawn/garden dept. It's a white powder and be careful not to have any breeze blow this powder near your face and wash hands after use.

Have fun....

In our area at least, Oklahoma, tiny little plants come up each year beneath the Forsythia bush. My

husband cuts them off or we dig them up and give away to others.

Yes, you can pick some branches and enjoy the yellow flowers, then the flowers will fall off and green leaves will appear. Keep water in the vase and roots will start. When there are enough roots on each stem, they can be planted.

I would like to start more lilac bushes and forsythia bushes. Can it be done successfully? Also a friend has a large rhododendron that they don't want. We want to move it to our house. What's the best way and the best time?

Bend forsythia branches to the ground and cover with soil. Water often. Roots will form and then you can cut it from the mother plant and transplant. I've also started them from cuttings placed in water and put out of the sun till rooted. Dig up baby lilac bushes that come up close to the mother plant and move to desired spot.

I have these bushes at work and would like to make a hedge using them. Can I root them to do so?

A friend of mine started a hedge with cuttings from our Forsythia. She just stuck them in the groound, no rooting in water, and they took off & she has a beautiful hedge all around the back of her property.
