Forsythia Bushes Have No Blooms Half Way Down

Question From: B. Campbell - NEW YORK
Q: the tops of our forsythia have blooms but there are few or no blooms half way down the bushes. How can I correct this?


That is the natural growth habit of the variety you have. Prune it back hard after it booms to encourage flowers on the lower parts of the branches. It will be short and very colorful next year. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
