Spring would not be spring without Forsythia. Forsythias grow well in almost any garden soil and are very hardy. They do need a lot of sun to ensure they flower well in spring.
Each spring the Forsythia is one of the first and most colour flowering shrubs to welcome the new growing season. Its bright yellow flowers appear all along long arching or upright branches. Prune Forsythias after flowering to ensure a nice shape and encourage new growth for the next season’s flowers as they flower on last season’s new growth.
