Last year I spent some time rejuvenating, if you will, our ‘Miss Kim’ lilac.
It had gone years without any maintenance pruning, just never making the priority list for chores out at the farm.
Although “Miss Kim” is considered a dwarf variety and needs less maintenance, it was in need of some serious reduction.
Last spring after the shrub finished blooming, I removed about one-third of the oldest wood, which resulted in new growth so this year the lilac looks great.
