Flowering Months
Feed and water Forsythia plants regularly until fully established. Prune Forsythia plants in late spring after flowering. Cut back all flowered shoots to a healthy pair of leaves. On established Forsythia plants, cut back up to a fifth of the oldest shoots to their base, to encourage healthy new growth and improve flowering. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or other organic matter around the base of the plant after pruning.
Grow Forsythia plants in moist, well drained soil in full sun or semi-shade.
