Very cute house.
May 01, Taking cuttings is an age old method of getting more plants from established ones to pass on or keep to expand your own garden. Rooting lilacs from cuttings is a great way to get more of these beautiful bushes. Choose the lilac you wish to propagate.
New shots are growing, but it will be a while before any of them are blooming size.
Take a few cuttings just after flowering. Dip in rooting hormone and plant in treenotch.clubs: If your lilacs become too tall, and the number of blooms declines, you can rejuvenate the plant by cutting one-third of the oldest branches.
Cut these main stems to 12 to 15 inches from the soil. This will stimulate the growth of new shoots. Pruning in this way over a three-year period will refresh the plant without sacrificing blooms. The reticulata lilacs are somewhat mildew-resistant, definitely trees, gorgeous bark like a cherry, and pretty flowers (but not for smelling - too close to their privet relatives!). Happy lilac-growing and -smelling to all!
Robin. vladpup. 16 years ago. G'Day! - Lynn, of COURSE you can have a baby white lilac. Apr 27, I have read that to rejuvenate a lilac, in year one, cut back to the ground 1/3 of the shoots/stems, right after it flowers. Select the biggest stems for this cutback. Do the same in year two. Do the same in year three.
But be prepaired to bring home plants you never knew you needed!
This may temporarily affect flowering We have a lilac. Jun 04, 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. Water it in well. Keep your fresh planted lilac watered until it is established.
