Buy Forsythia × intermedia 'Lynwood Variety' forsythia: A haze of vivid yellow flowers in early spring

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or light shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: February to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    With its branches smothered in vivid yellow flowers, this deciduous shrub is a really cheery sight on a shivery day in early spring. The flowers appear before the bright green leaves, covering the plant in a fine cloth of gold. Try it as part of a winter scheme, at the back of a border, where it can be seen from the house, or as an informal hedge.

  • Garden care: Prune out one or two old main stems at the base after flowering. Thin out crowded shoots from the centre and to keep a compact appearance, cut back flowered shoots to a strong bud.

I would buy this plant again


Thank you

Jungle Julie



Healthy plant


Smallish shrub,but full of flower buds.




buy again


I have this in a pot on the patio and it flowered well towards the end of the summer, but then with the very mild autumn/early winter it got a bit confused and flowered again. Nice to have a bright splash of colour in an otherwise dull area.

A strong lively shrub


Forsythia with its abundant sunny yellow sprays is a wonderful shrub to brighten dull days in early Spring. It is very reliable and should be pruned after flowering so it can develop


Boston Lincolnshire


Always impressed with this nursery


Very healthy plant,already blooming




Early colour


I bought this as my boyfriend loves the colour and its usually the first to flower, signaling the end of winter. The plant was in good condition, and has survived a particularly cold winter. The pretty yellow flowers are a welcome sight. Put it somewhere you can see it from inside as it flowers before you are spending much time outside enjoying it.

Very pretty


I have a spot in my garden where no shrub will survive no matter how hard I try. My neighbour suggested Forsythia and how right she was. It is thriving and about to burst into flower this Spring. Sadly, no wildlife value but it will probably be a good support for Summer climber.

We have bought many plants from Crocus and they are always excellent.

Forsythia pruning Could you tell me what I'm doing wrong with my Forsythia, -it never blooms. I prune mine when all the other plants in other people's gardens have lost their flowers, -am I not pruning it hard enough or at the wrong time of the year? It's been in the garden for over 15years. Thanks

Hello There, There are a number of reasons why plants don't flower including too much shade, not enough water or nutrients, or pruning at the wrong time of the year. I am not really sure why yours has not produced buds, but you can often give them a bit of a push by feeding with a high potash fertiliser. I'm sorry not to be more help. Helen Plant Doctor
