I didn't know exactly where to post this. I brought in some pruned off branches of a Prunus Sargent's Cherry tree. Crushed the ends of the stems and put in warm water. The buds are swelling fast. I also put in a couple of 3 week old pink large Chrysanthemum blooms left from an on sale cut flowers from Wal Mart. (Sometimes one is lucky at WM.) They were on sale from 10:00 to $5.00 and i couldn't pass them up. allthe flowers in the bunch lasted a long time.

Haven't as yet arranged the branches, waiting for more buds to open.

How long before the buds might open? Thanks for telling how you did this and please keep us posted when the blooms open.

I forced some of my quince and it opened quite well Kimberly. Those buds remind me of pink flowering almond!
