How do I transplant a lilac bush?
Can you cut lilacs and replant?
Dip the bottom of the cutting in rooting hormone and plant it in the hole, then pat the potting mix lightly around the base of the cutting so it stands up straight. You can plant several cuttings in the same pot, as long as they leaves aren't touching. You can also plant cuttings in celled nursery trays.
How do you bring lilacs back to life?
Grasp one side of the sliced stem and twist backward. Immediately place the cut stems back into the bucket of water. Allow the stems to take up more water in a cool, dark place for another one to two hours. The lilacs will then be ready for arranging, and will last three to four days.
