The Q&A Archives: lliac and snowball bushes

Question: We have planted these two bushes a long time ago and they have not done much. How can we save them. They get smaller every year!!help!!!

Answer: Full sunshine and annual pruning will keep both shrubs thick, dense, and full of blooms. If your shrubs are not getting all day sunshine, move them to a sunnier spot. Then prune them back right after bloom to encourage lots of new flowering stems. Best wishes with your landscape!
