Still frosty mornings in north Florida when can you trim bushes?

Apr 28, To prune your lilacs, start deadheading in early-to-late spring by cutting the flowers at their base just after they’ve reached their peak. You should also cut any flowers that are already dying so they don’t sap energy that could be used for new growth%(4). May 07, Lilac bushes that do not get enough sun will not flower. Also if you prune a lilac in winter or spring, you are cutting the flowers off.

Prune flowering hedges after they've bloomed in order to avoid cutting off buds.

Renovating Shrubs. If you've seen older shrubs that look like giant stems of broccoli, then you've seen shrubs that are ready for renovation. Shrubs that aren't properly pruned over the years can become tall and leggy, bushy and oversized, or just plain ugly. Removing the dead flowers from your lilac bush will encourage more blooms the following year.

The important thing when trimming off your flowers is that you simply cut off the spent flowers- don't worry about any surrounding deadhead lilacs, simply snip. You can completely remove the lower, spindly branches, or you can simply cut the entire shrub back by one-third to promote a dense, bushy growth habit. Do this as soon as the flowers are spent so your shrub will have all summer to produce flower buds for the following spring's floral display.
