Are you fertilizing these plants?

If no longer than approx 1 inch.

While I'd not hesitate to do rejuvenation pruning on a typical common lilac now, one that is grown in a tree form (single trunk rather than multiple stems/canes from the ground) should be treated a bit differently.

Too severe a pruning at this time of year might well jeopardize its future, specially in a colder climate. Jul 08, Most flowering shrubs need regular pruning to keep them vibrant, and the common lilac (Syringa vulgaris) is no exception. Lilac bushes will typically flower without any effort from you. However, if left to grow and spread on their own, common lilacs will eventually only flower on the tops of the uppermost branches.

Apr 02, The best time for pruning lilac bushes is right after their flowering has ceased. This allows new shoots plenty of time to develop the next season of blooms. Pruning lilacs too late can kill young developing buds. If you are pruning lilac trees or shrubs entirely to within inches of the ground, it is best to do so in early spring.

Lilac Companion Plants. If you are wondering what to plant with lilac bushes, you may be surprised at the large selection of lilac companion plants. Companion plants for lilac bushes are plants that either look good near lilacs, or else complement the lilacs in some way. You can use plastic, or bed sheeting, burlap, tarps, or whatever is large enough BUT you have to keep the covering from touching the lilac.

Contact with the cover means contact with the freeze, so avoid contact.
