Its that time again to man our BIG buckets, get the snippers out and force nature to give us springtime EARLY!
Well, I got my bucket. Need to find my snippers...UGH!
Ok, I will at least fill the buckets and garbage cans with water! Until I can find my snips. Grrr! Winter can be such a pain when tools get stored and its time to get things going again!!
Last year, when we tried this venture. I did not put my containers in a dark closet. Which I should have done. It would have made more bloomers. Also for more bloomers I should have smashed the ends of the woody shrubs with a hammer, so ok, this year we want bloomers! Wheres the hammer?
Smash smash smash those ends for the bloomers and to the bucket in a dark closet they go Do not smashn the ends if you want roots and put those in a light area. You will get blooms on the ones you are trying to root, but they will noit be as good as the ones done the other way!
Last year I was forcing for trees! So they stayed in a light place.
So on your marks get set! GO!
Lets see who gets the first forced bloomer or rooter of spring! Tells us what your forcing!
