I tell myself I am going to prune, but a lot.

} Jun 30, 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 in the early spring. Fertilize the plant with compost or a balanced fertilizer to prompt new takedownshrub.pwted Reading Time: 6 mins. Apr 02, If lilac bushes are already too large or becoming unsightly, however, pruning the entire bush or tree to about 6 or 8 inches ( cm.) off the ground may be necessary.

Keep in mind that you may have to wait for flowers, as tree removal fails, Okeechobee FL takes about three years for them to develop once the entire shrub has been takedownshrub.pwted Reading Time: 2 mins. Jun 26, 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 takedownshrub.pwted Reading Time: 3 mins.

May 08, With a sharp shovel, you want to dig up your new lilac bush. 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 takedownshrub.pws: 6. Jun 10, Use clippers to trim the plant close to the ground.

Additional thinning of the new shoots should also be done.

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 K. No, like flowering bulbs, cutting the flowers makes for better flowers next year, because you prevent plant energy spent on growing seeds. I cut off all the flower clusters when they fade on my very young bushes, so they use energy on growing, not seeds.

Lilac bushes SHOULD be cut, they are FOR being enjoyed where you want them in vases or being given away. Church flowers, nursing home friends, spread the flowers around! I get so many good memories of things, when I sniff smelly lilacs!! Jun 04, Transplanting Lilac Shoots. You do not have to put your freshly dug suckers or shoots into pots. You can plant them directly into the ground.

But with lilacs, the only time deadheading seems to help them bloom better is during the first few years of growth.

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. Sep 29, You don’t have to prune lilac bushes, but you can do so to keep them from becoming too tall. The best time to prune lilac bushes is straight after they ended flowering to allow new shoots enough time to develop for the next season.
