RE: Lilacs


I'm with Kitty here.  I have a lilac that hasn't bloomed in 7 years and I
KNOW that it is in too much shade.  I had one in a mostly sun setting, but
it still got too much shade and developed a very bad case of powdery mildew.
I am having trouble finding enough sun for the shaded one so that I can move
it.  I can't put it beside the driveway as in time I know it will grow much
too large for the narrow strip of land if it is anything like what mother
grew (close to 20' tall and at least 7' worth of shrub in diameter!)  

My next door neighbor complained when his lilac didn't bloom every year and
then I noticed that he pruned the shrub early EVERY spring!  One must only
prune after blossoms are gone if you want the wonderfully fragrant flowers.
Once he quit pruning at the wrong time of year, it had the loveliest
blossoms!

Blessings,

Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

Cathy, 
Do they prune it every year at the wrong time?  Does it get plenty of sun?
Kitty
