Forcing is a technique by which plants come out of dormancy, and then bloom at an unusual time.

In winter, the flowering branches of lilacs are extremely beautiful. An unusual time, the contrast of a fragile, delicate branch with harsh weather - this is of particular interest for an amateur gardener.

It is necessary to cut off the branches not earlier than mid-December, when the plants end their natural dormancy period, which began in autumn with the fall of the leaves. In mid-December and at a later date, the lilac is ready to bloom.

How to make a lilac branch bloom in winter?

Method I

You need to harvest branches about 2 months before flowering. It is necessary to choose branches with well-developed flower buds and keep in the refrigerator at a temperature of 2 - 5 ° C for at least five weeks. Remove the branches from the fridge 2 weeks before the blooming time and place them in cold water to thaw. Use hammer blows to flatten the ends and place them in containers of water at room temperature. Add sugar and some disinfectants to the water, such as a pinch of chloramine, to prevent microorganisms from multiplying. After 10-14 days, the lilac blooms.

Method II

You can cut the branches of the lilac in winter and 1 month before flowering. In this case, we recommend spraying the branches with warm water repeatedly. For the first 2 - 3 days, you can cover the branches from above to create increased air humidity. The closer to spring the branches are cut, the faster flowering will begin, usually in 2 weeks. When the buds begin to swell on the lilac branches, sugar can be added to the water (30 g per 1 liter of water).

You can recommend special solutions for distillation:

  • solution according to the method of Professor Rupprecht: 3% sugar, 0.08% potassium alum, 0.03% potassium chloride, 0.02% sodium chloride;
  • any commercially available cut flower preparations;
  • 0.2% solution of complete mineral fertilizer (dissolve in boiled water).

A few drops of ammonia can be added to the water.

The room where forcing is carried out must have a temperature: in December plus 26 - 28 ° С; plus 2 2 - 2 5 in January, plus 16 - 18 ° С in February. Plants should not be placed near central heating radiators and heating devices.

The blossoming branches are placed in a 2-3% citric acid solution. The flowers, of course, are much weaker and smaller than in the open field, but still they last up to 7 days.

Recommended varieties of lilacs for distillation: 'Hydrangea', 'Buffon', 'Marie Legre', 'Madame Florent Stepman', 'Madame Casimir Perier', 'Alice Harding'.

For early distillation, varieties with white flowers are most suitable, dark-colored varieties turn pale when distilled.
