- Select branches to bring in. Make sure they’re at least a foot long and have enough tight buds. Remove them with clippers from tree or shrub.
- When indoors, cut with a sharp knife the branch ends at an angle. Then slit them lengthwise a few inches.
- Place the branches (the cut ends) in warm water over night.
- The next day put the branches in a vase with more warm water.
- Display out of direct sunlight.
- Now wait. It may take a week or more.
