My view from the yoga mat this morning. I know it is very un-yogic to let myself get distracted, but there you go. Through the doors at the back you can see the orangery with grow light over my lemon tree.
I don't think I'll keep these long enough for any rooting to occur, @lesliecole49. They will probably head straight for the grinder once the flowers are over. It's a tough life🤣😜 But when I have taken cuttings of this shrub in the past, I haven't bothered with putting them in water, I've just plunked them directly in soil. I made my very own forsythia hedge for free that way, and now it lights up my driveway every spring.
@lesliecole49, these are prunings from one of my very many forsythia shrubs (they take easily from cuttings). Normally I wait until after flowering before pruning, but now that I'm in urgent need of compost material to get my greenhouse bed going, all my bushes and trees are in danger of drastic haircuts😱
For some reason (probably has to do with where it gets more sunlight) all the flowering branches are facing away from the house, so I've never really appreciated just how beautiful it is @ShelleySnyder @jacaranda
