Can anyone tell me how and when you prune a dwarf lilac?

Thankyou Andrew Rose



No real need for pruning, although you can deadhead if you want to buy clipping off the spent flower heads. If you want to reshape or keep small, any pruning should be done immediately after flowering, and as little as possible.

Thankyou for your response. I'll try what you said.
