The Q&A Archives: Best Times to Move a Lilac

Question: When is the best time of year to move a lilac bush? In what season is it best to trim the lower limbs from a blue spruce? Peg Rozzi Brewster, NY

Answer: The best time to move your lilac bush is either in early spring before growth starts or after flowering. The best time to trim the lower limbs from your blue spruce is when your saw is sharp! Just trim in late winter, or you'll get looks of "bleeding"of sap. Have Fun!
