Apr 20, To layer a branch, just place a pot near an established forsythia plant. Choose a branch that will reach to the pot and bury the stem under a few inches of soil.

You can’t see the ropes in this photo, but there are two of them – one low and one fairly treemulching.buzzted Reading Time: 10 mins.
