The Q&A Archives: Pruning Shrubs

Question: When should you prune your Miss Kim Lilac bush?

Answer: Lilac bushes spend all summer developing flower buds for the next year's display. Prune immediately after flowers are spent (early summer) so the plant has the rest of the summer to develop new flower buds for the following year's display.
