I have a lilac bush in my yard I planted 3-4 years ago. It's not very tall and has not blossomed at all. Any thoughts on what I should do in the spring or even now. We are in the Chicago area.

Thanks!

If you prune it back,dont.


One of mine did'nt blossom,then a friend said not to cut anything off of it.


Now i get nice blooms every spring.

I haven't pruned it, in fact, I almost ignore it!! I guess I'll see what happens next spring. Thanks for the idea tho, I appreciate it!

I was hoping you would get some more ideas - mine didn't bloom this year either.
