Bring spring blooms inside by forcing the trimmings of your fruit trees to blossom. A week indoors is all they need to bloom.
- Fruit tree trimmings (pictured: peach)
- Garden clippers
- Small water-filled vase
- Trim fruit tree branches as desired for spring pruning.
- Cut the trimmings into smaller sticks and place in a small water-filled vase.
- Bring vase indoors and after about a week, little blossoms will begin to appear!
Gardening tip: peach branches aren’t the only types that can be forced indoors – try cherry or apple tree trimmings too!
