Growing unruly forsythia

Listen to the full show:

What’s the deal when forsythia starts growing sideways? On this week’s You Bet Your Garden, host Mike McGrath will discuss the layering aspect of this abundant Spring bloomer; and reveal how its extra sugars can cut your Japanese beetle problems in half!

Question of the Week:

I currently have a forsythia that is growing along the ground. I heavily pruned it after flowering last year (after letting it grow out of control for years). Is there something I should do to control it now? Or just leave it be?
