It's not as necessary on older, established lilacs, not to.



Don’t shear them as you would a hedge. Lilacs are not meant to have this sheared look, and don’t have the branch structure leant to this. Rather, prune each major branch back to a side shoot.





Remember, as with pruning any shrubs or trees, the shoot or bud just below where you prune will grow out in the direction it is pointing. May 19, Older shrubs that have outgrown their space can be pruned hard in winter, when they are dormant. This diminishes the year's bloom, but a crowded shrub may not be blooming well anyway. Drastic pruning should be done in stages, taking away some of the old stems over several winters.

Remove only 1/4 to 1/3 of the largest stems per bushdisposal.pwted Reading Time: 1 min. Jan 09, Cut back 1/3 of the older lilac canes or branches. The following year cut out the next 1/3 of the oldest branches then the final year cut back the last of the oldest branches. Doing this in 1/3’s will let you have blooms and still cut back the old worn out branches fully renovating the lilac.

This prevents a thicket from developing. You should do this soon after flowers have fallen. Do not prune in late summer, fall, or winter; late pruning often results in removal of flower buds.
