Forced branches. What better way to herald Spring’s arrival with one of nature’s earliest reminders of a flourishing world that awaits? Spring’s return. Although the world outside may only be on the verge of Spring’s transformation, consider forcing branches for a visual of budding delight within your interior world. Chase away the remnants of the past season’s Winter chill by coaxing branches from your exterior world to bloom early within your interior world. A fresh, visual reminder of the blossoms of Spring that will eventually fill the scenery and world beyond our windows. Perhaps the anticipation for Spring’s arrival for those of us whose Winter took a toll on our surrounds and mental state is even greater than usual. Perhaps the requirement of Spring’s arrival within our spaces is thus crucial. Either way, the display of budding and flowering branches is certain to welcome the renewal of Spring

Choosing wayward branches for cutting will simultaneously provide you with a head start on shaping your shrubs. A two-fold purpose, indeed! Of course,the closer to the normal bloom time when you cut and gather the stems, the easier the branches will be to force their bloom. Alas, there is a bit of timing here. But worthwhile. By selecting stems with buds that have begun to “Swell”, cutting on an angle or “hammering” the stem’s end to split for better water absorption, will certainly extend the appeal of the forced bloom. And of the location within the interior once immersed in water? Typically, branches will thrive in diffused light yet a sunnier location will ensure the buds open to add cheer to your interior world.

Whether delicate clippings of towering and expansive branches, smaller cuttings trimmed for a bud vase or eye-catching centerpieces filled with linear delight, forced branches create an elegant still life that brings renewal to our interior world. The linear style of branches that require very little arranging will fill vases with delight for the eyes. Captivating and enchanting arrangements of nature. Whether single branches or pleasing combinations, the budding and bountiful blooms or leaves of green are sure to delight your senses and bring your interiors to life…
