I can't really get to the bush to do anything to it. We lived here 23 years ago and then moved out about 18 years ago, but my father still owned the property, so I just moved back about 4years ago, and each year since I have been here, it seems to be producing less and less. I donb't remember Buds on it last year, although my Fiance says he rememembers it being loaded, bUt I am NEARLY certain it had about 2 buds on it.
There are no dried up little brown buds anywhere on it, I really don't think that we had a late frost or freeze here, I think that they just never produced any flowers
, except the one cluster I mentioned earlier. I have done NO pruning to it, I wouldn't even know how, and I don't think I could really reach it. The only thing I can reach on that lilac tree
, is that one little cluster of flowers
that is reaching out over all the berry bushes, nearly to my lawn. Do I leave the dead bud on there, or can I start another lilac tree
with the dried up flower
