When I saw that one of our blog entries could be on lilacs this week I was so excited! I
lilacs. Growing up our neighbor had the BIGGEST lilac bush that was right near our property line. We would make May baskets on May 1 out of strawberry baskets (anyone remember those) and fill them with those yummy smelling lilacs and hang them on the neighbors' doors.
As an adult I didn't have lilacs until we moved into the house in the town we live now. There was a lilac bush right off the front deck. When we moved that house to have our new house put in, my husband cut that bush down then burned the rest. I was so mad.
Does anyone know if I can graft off of another lilac bush? If I can, I'll going to bring a cutting home off of my Mom's lilac bush and see if I can't get another growing on our property.
