A healthy lilac bush or tree should have no more than 2 or 3.



Can I cut a lilac bush to the ground? Yearly pruning keeps lilacs under control Old stems become less and less productive and, if not grafted, should be cut back to the ground. New shoots and suckers should be thinned out to keep them properly spaced around the shrub. Can you air layer lilacs? Timing. 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 it takes about three years for them to develop once the entire shrub has been cut.



Let me explain what I am doing.

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 10, 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.
