Paperwhites at Thanksgiving. Crocus, amaryllis, and tulips for the holidays. Great vases of flowing forsythia filling rooms with spring---in the dead of February. Its all the magic of forcing bulbs, branches, and blossoms, and heres the book that shows how.Written by award-winning author Katherine Whiteside and drawing on the plant- and bulb-purveying expertise of Smith & Hawken, Forcing, Etc. combines hands-on-how-to with an artists passion for detail to show how to grow dozens of common and exotic plants, including hardy bulbs--crocus, narcissus, muscari, and iris- tender bulbs--oxalis, calla lily, clivia- branches--apple and apricot to bittersweet, moosewood, and quince- and tender plants--fuchsia, coleus, clematis, lemongrass, and scented geraniums. In addition, the author focuses on presentation and display: choosing unexpected containers- creating tripods, trellises, and tuteurs- and orchestrating an indoor garden for balance of bloom and color.
