4 Your Garden: forcing bulbs to bloom in winter

OKLAHOMA CITY – It’s a well loved tradition at Linda Vater’s house.

She’s gardening inside; forcing amaryllis and paper-white bulbs to bloom for a signature holiday display.

Linda is showing us today how simple the process is– and she says it helps if you raid the liquor cabinet!

Using any sort of hard liquor can be used to stunt the flowers’ growth so they don’t flop.
