I have a forthysia bush that only gets the odd bloom around the bottom
branches. This has been going on every year. Can someone please give me
some suggestions because all around are beautiful yellow flowering bushes.
Forsythia blooms on year old wood. Prune the oldest canes out right now.
If you wait, you'll lose bloom. Don't remove more than a third of the canes
but the ones you do cut get down at ground level.
Do the same next year with a third of the oldest canes and again the year
You should have a beautiful forsythia but it will take some time.
we had some forsythia. bloom was erratic. the rabbits were chewing the stems
the "snow" line. also, there was some winter kill. so I first ordered several
different forsythia, planted em side by side and put a fence around them to keep
rabbits out. one of these was the best and that one I propagated to fill in
whacked out the old ones.
go to neighbors with great looking forsythia. ask em what they do with em. and
for cuttings. root em in a bid of dam soil.
I lived ontario and either you are around TO and it is mild or further north and
snow every other day in winter and I cant believe you are zone 5, I thought it
lot colder than that. Ingrid
