Message: I have 2 forsythias and I cut them back after blooming. This year they have grown 4 to 5 feet since then and I'd like to trim them again. Can I do that and still have blooms next year?

Message: Hi have just bought a forsthia plant from the internet, as it's only about 8 - 10 inches high, can I plant it outdoors yet or would I be better keeping it indoors until it starts to get a bit milder. Thanks for any input you can give me.

Message: I recently planted about 20 or so forsythia plants. The plants that are getting full sun and partial sun have already sprouted shoots but several of these plants get no sun at all and are doing nothing. My question is, what do I hsve to do to get them started. It's only been a few weeks, should I just wait it out? Will providing artificial light for a few hours a day do it? If so what type of light is appropriate?
Is their another solution? Thank you for your consideration in this regard.
