Subject: Old Lilac Bush
From: Gail

I have a lilac bush that must me about 20 yrs old. It still blooms but all the blooms are at the top of the tree, which might be around 10 ft high. All the rest is just bare sticks on the bottom. There is some suckers growing from the bottom. What should I do with it. I don't mind cutting it all back but would it fill out and blossoms again some day! What would happen if I cut the OLD wood down to about 2 ft and just leave the new growth to come?
