weigela and lilac pruning
I have a lilac and weigela bush. The lilac is approx 12 feet high and had lots of flowers this year; however, the trunk has grown over to the left and is not looking good. Can I cut trunk down to above the ground and will it reshoot?
The weigela again had lots of flowers but I have a lot of thick branches or trunks so it is looking a bit tatty. Can I also cut it to the ground? Many thanks.
