Lilac bushes can survive for over 100 years, which means they often become smothered with weeds and develop a lot of dead wood. However, you can easily revitalize your lilac bushes by:
1. Clearing all brush and scrub trees away from the area around your lilac.
2. Cutting out all dead wood back to the base of your shrub.
3. Giving your bush a dose of slow acting granular fertilizer that is low in nitrogen.
