Forcing blooms indoors
I pruned my peach trees the other day and took about 30 sticks inside. I put them in vases to see if the buds survived the cold spell we had. Kept them full of water and now 2 weeks later, ALL of the buds have dried up and fallen off. The area behind the bud appears green, and the stem is still pliable.
Is it possible that the humidity was just too low inside the house and the buds couldn't take it......or was it -15f that did them in?
I was hoping that at least the vegetative buds would have survived.
