How to get Apple Buds to Bloom Before Spring

apple budsHere is an old Jonamac Orchard trick to get apple buds to bloom before spring.

Cut some twigs from an apple tree (or other flowering tree) with buds on them, take them inside and place in a jar of warm water near a window or in a warm spot, like your kitchen. In about 2 to 2 1/2 weeks, the twigs will bloom into beautiful flowers. We started some today, so we will keep you posted with the progress of our buds inside and out!
