Forsythia -- Blooms

By The Old House Web
Forsythia flower buds are formed in the fall for the following year's spring bloom. Severe winter temperatures may kill buds. Freezing and thawing temperatures can also damage flower buds.

Several birds including crows, cardinals and robins will feed on expanding flower buds in the spring. Netting may prove the only method of bird prevention.
