Give Living Gifts

I wouldn't doubt that many of you have forsythia. I have the Lynwood Gold hybrid. Now is a good time to root cuttings for giving to friends and relatives. They are so easy to root, they will root most anywhere, under most conditions, even in a glass of water.

What are you waiting for? Snap off a few pieces, put them in damp soil in a shady place. Within two weeks you should have what I have here, (they do root quickly). You will be remembered fondly every spring!

The best gifts are seeds, plants, recipes and pictures of happy times in your life.

Those are beautiful specimens! I no longer have these but just might be inspired to look for some as I do have fond memories of these in my past. You are right about using plants as gifts - both giving and receiving.

If all your inspirations were irons in the fire, you could brand the whole herd.

I rooted one about 8-9 years ago, it is now a huge giant. Very lovely, but give it a spacious sunny area. I did what I should not do, bent a branch down from the main tree and clipped into the dirt, it took root and I should of planted it but left it where it was so 2 trees grew together in the same area.
