Forcing, etc
Smith & Hawken
Katherine Whiteside has put together a great reference and resource guide for forcing not only the hardy bulbs like tulip and crocus, but tender bulbs like amaryllis, clivia and calla lily - houseplants like jasmine and begonias - and twigs and branches.

The twigs and branches interested me the most, since I am often asked when to cut in order to have them forced at certain times.

Also included are choosing the right containers. Plant profiles covers specifics for the most widely grown flowers and tips for plant pairing and arranging are also offered by this innovative floral artist.

Richard Felber has included photographs to further tempt you.
