Apr 02, Pruning lilacs too late can kill young developing buds. If you are pruning lilac trees or shrubs entirely to within inches of the ground, it is best to do so in early spring. New shoots will develop during the regular growing season as long as there are a few healthy shoots left. Once the growing season has ended, remove any unsightly treedrop.pwted Reading Time: 2 mins.

Jun 30, The plant will begin to bloom all over, and you can do regular maintenance pruning from that point on. If you can't stand the look of your old lilac or you just want a quicker approach, you can take the drastic measure of cutting back the entire plant to about 6 to 8 inches above the ground Estimated Reading Time: 6 mins.

Jun 19, Cut away shoots or suckers that are growing near the ground. Trimming the inner branches in order to improve air circulation or to allow more light to filter through, may also be necessary. If you are pruning old lilac trees or shrubs entirely to within inches of the ground, it is best to do so in early spring.

Before you begin making cuts to the stems, inspect your lilac to see if it has been treedrop.pwted Reading Time: 2 mins. Apr 28, Use clippers to trim the plant close to the ground.

If the trunks are very thick, you may need a saw. Cut each branch back by 1/3 to 1/2. The lilac will grow back, but it'll take a season or two. If you discovered that your plant was grafted, be sure not to cut below the graft%(4).

May 08, Dig approx. inches around the outer edges of the rooted area and bring as much soil as possible up with the rooted lilac bush. Take your pruning shears and cut the branch approximately at ground level, away from the Mother Plant. This will allow the Mother Plant to reshape and you’ll never know you removed a cutting. Jun 04, You can plant them directly into the ground. To plant your freshly dug lilac sucker in the ground, dig a hole deep enough, loosen up the soil some by digging around with your shovel.

Place your lilac sucker or shoot into the hole and fill back with the loose soil. Gently firm it in with your foot. Cut it down! Seriously, drastically cut it back to the ground and get almost all new shoots! Then those new shoots will have blooms and we are back to blooms at the level we can see them and pick them. Jun 14, Take cuttings of lilac bushes from tender new growth in late spring or early summer.

Mature growth is less likely to root. Take several cuttings to increase your chance of success. Take cuttings in the morning when the weather is cool and the plant is well-hydrated.

Cut 4- to 6-inch lengths ( cm.) of tender, new growth. Here you can see the bush in that corner step is gone and I'm starting to work on the stump of a lilac tree I cut down using the same method. We removed 8 bushes and tree stumps that day all about the size of the one in the video (including that big one in the background against the fence in the picture), and every one worked great!
