Last October I decided to trim these 2 Lilac bushes. The first one I wacked all the way down and the other one I trimmed all the shoots off the bottom branches to make into a tree. It looks so much better all cleaned up. Well then I decided to keep some of the branches to spray paint for my winter interest in my pots around the house. So I just put some branches in the shed and in late November I took them out and spray painted some silver and some red to randomly stick them into all my pots around the house to start decorating for the winter season. I don’t call it Christmas decorating just in case I don’t get far with the decorating of the outside of the house so I call it winter interest or season. Which works out for me this year cause I never did get any Christmas lights up.
Well lo and behold I decided to check out my pots last week and see how I could clean them up. Even though it is warm outside it is way to early to spring plant and I noticed that most of my lilac sticks were budding out and one set of sticks not only had buds but also had lilacs on them. Can you believe that!!!
I just can’t believe it is that easy to do. Now I have to find a place to plant all these new Lilac bushes that will look dumpy for a while, but as an avid gardener that I am, you know I can’t throw anything away. I don’t even thin out my transplanted seeds I pull each one out and replant. This excited me to know end. Well on to finding them a place to rest and grow. I have a little time for that since it isn’t ready to clean out my pots yet, but I do need to transplant all 389 various plant plugs I bought Saturday. Do you know that I make my own pots out of newspaper! Oh yeh I am the obsessed gardener! Have a great beginning of your Spring, mine is off to a great start!
