You know Spring has arrived in White Pines when everywhere you walk smells so sweet.
Pruning also is generally an annual task.
Jun 04, Water it in well. Keep your fresh planted lilac watered until it is established. This is best done in Spring before the temperatures get too hot so the roots can start to get growing and able to bring up water. Keep close watch on it for a few months. And that is how you propagate lilacs from suckers. Jan 08, Plant lilac bushes in a hole dug approximately twice as large as the root ball.
This is necessary to avoid infesting the plant with diseases coming from an unsterilized shear and you should also use gloves when doing this.
When planting lilac bushes, make sure that the spot you have chosen has good drainage, and at least 6 hours of sun a day. If you have acid soil, throw a handful of lime in to the planting hole. Make sure you give your lilac plenty of room.
