Lilac Shoots How to Plant


Anonymous added on May 22, 2011 | Answered

I have heard that you can cut the shoots of lilacs in order to plant them for more bushes. Is this true? How would I go about doing this (ie. where to cut, how much to cut and dig, etc. )?

Lilacs are typically clump forming, producing new shoots from the base of the trunk. These shoots can be used for propagating lilac bushes. Dig down from the main clump, exposing the roots and cut the shoot away from the mother plant. Make sure you include roots. Then simply plant the shoot in a suitable location, watering regularly until it takes hold.
