Forcing Apple Blossom

The pruned apple branches I brought inside a month ago have started to bloom and the house is brimming with Spring 🌸🌿 (and pollen to my husband's dismay 😊). Here are the steps I followed if you're interested in trying:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Prune branches with blossom/fruit buds (these usually stick out further from the branch than a leaf bud⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Soak the branches in a lukewarm bathtub for an hour or two, this keeps them from dehydrating and going into shock⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Cut ends and place in a bucket of water in low light⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Replace water every week and wait for blooms⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
