Toni,
I was so excited to read your article! I love lilacs; the back yard of my family home was bordered on three sides with full grown beautiful and fragrant lilacs of varying colors. Some of my fondest childhood memories include waking up in the springtime with my windows open and my entire bedroom smelling like lilacs. When I moved into my current home, I realized that I had a lilac bush in my backyard and was overjoyed. After several springs with only a few blooms on the bush, I figured that my lilac was not meant to have flowers and I ordered several saplings from a nursery. Now I've learned so much from your article that I can also work on pruning my older bush and I'm so excited to see what kind of results I might get. In the interim, my saplings seem to be doing well but if you have any advice about them I'd love to hear! Thanks again for your insight! cbetz
