I bought a yellow lilac bush this past spring and since it arrived early and I didn’t know where to put it, I planted it into a large pot on my patio. It’s done pretty well and is showing new buds as we speak (November). I live on Long Island, NY and it’s getting cold out. Since I’m still unsure where to plant it and didn’t think fall was a good time anyway, what should I do so that it survives the winter? Wrap it? Put it in the unheated garage? Bring it indoors? Leave it be?
When is the best time to prune a lilac bush? I planted a bush last spring that is about 2 feet tall. Should I prune it back some now (Nov in SC) to encourage blooms?
I have a lilac tree. It’s about 9-feet high. I have it planted 6 feet from my neighbor’s wall. They are worried the roots will damage their foundation. Can you tell me if this will do that?
My question is I have lilacs that are about 10 feet tall and I’m looking to cut about two feet off the tops. Can I do it now or even early spring? I live in NY and the temps are in the 30′s and 40′s when I’m looking to cut them.
What is the white substance (looks like a white power) on the bottom going toward the to of the branch. Will it kill the lilac? What, if anything, can be done? Thanks for any help.
