I didn't realize u could force some of those bushes and trees to bloom indoors!
Thanks for sharing that info!
It would be awesome to see a cherry or crab apple tree blossom indoors.
U know, someone gave me a couple forsythia bushes last spring and i never set them out.. :-( Those suckers are hardy! They stayed in 5 gallon buckets all summer. Last i saw they were still alive.
Honey suckle would be neat to see growing indoors. Love the scent!
