    The leaves on a young bush of lilac twisted, “rusted”. What is the reason?

    • OOO "Sad"

      - Most likely, this is leaf spotting. The cause of the disease was microscopic fungi, which cause various spots, and those growing, can lead to damage to the entire leaf plate, curling and darkening of the leaf. Long rains, lowering temperatures in the summer contribute to the acceleration of the development of the disease.
      Preventive measures
      Collect fallen, damaged leaves and burn. Ф All top dressings are carried out strictly according to the instructions. Do not apply nitrogen fertilizer in the second half of summer, beginning in late July.
      Spray the bushes with fungicides "Skor", "Rayek", "Topaz" and Bordeaux liquid (according to the instructions) during the entire growing season - once a month.
      Alternate treatments with biological products "Alirin-B", "Gamair", "Trichoderma Veride", "Trichocin" (according to the instructions).

      Trim bushes in time to avoid thickening the crown.

    Do lilac brushes need to be cut off? What to do so that flowering branches stand for a long time in a cut?

      - Be sure to cut dried inflorescences until the seeds are formed. Otherwise, next year the bush will bloom poorly. For a bouquet of lilac branches cut in the early morning and immediately put in water in a cool place. But first, break the ends of the branches with a hammer, and tear off the leaves.
      Change the water daily, updating the cut each time (do not forget to break the end of the stem with a hammer).
      To freshen a lilac bouquet that has faded, dip the ends of the twigs in boiling water for a couple of minutes (steam should not get on the flowers!), And then return them to a vase and transfer to a cool place.

    A neighbor in the country gives a gorgeous terry lilac. A friend does not mind giving me a branch for reproduction, but we do not know how to do it right.

    • OOO "Sad"

      Lilacs are propagated using cuttings (most reliable of all green ones) as well as many other ornamental and fruit plants. Take the tops of lateral shoots 15 cm long with 4-6 leaves. The upper cut is made straight, the lower is at an angle, it is treated with a preparation containing heteroauxin .2 lower leaves are removed, the rest are shortened by half.
      Cuttings are planted in holes 30 cm deep, a drainage layer (10 cm) is placed in them, over which humus is poured, and then fertile soil. Over the landings, a plastic film is pulled over the arcs for about a month. Rooting will occur during this time. True, the dropout of planting material can reach 50%. In autumn, plants are transplanted to a permanent place.
      You can also propagate lilac using root offspring. In the fall, until mid-October, annual shoots that grow no closer than 20-25 cm from the bush should be separated from the mother plant.
      This planting material is immediately buried in the ground at the place where it is planned to grow a new bush. The plant is well watered and sheltered for the winter.

    How to properly care for a bush of lilac ordinary after it fades?

      - After flowering, you can carry out sanitary pruning: remove dry, too old, broken
      or diseased branches. When the border between the shoot and the faded panicle becomes visible, they begin to trim the inflorescences. This event is optional, but if you decide to crop, then do not start before July. The whisk should be lignified.
      Once every 2-3 years, potassium and phosphorus fertilizers are applied under the lilac (mid-June-mid-July).
      About reproduction
      During flowering, cuttings are cut for rooting in cuttings. Their rooting decreases with the lignification of shoots.
      In June, you can start vaccinating lilacs with budding. As rootstocks use S. ordinary, S. Hungarian or privet ordinary. The first option is preferable.
      About landing
      From late August to late September is the best time to plant lilacs. They are planted in a sunny place in cultivated soil, where there is no stagnation of high waters, and groundwater lies deep. The planting pit is seasoned with well-rotted compost, bone and dolomite flour, nitrogen-free fertilizers. At the bottom of the pit, drainage is poured, sand is introduced. The root neck cannot be deepened.
      During spring planting, plants require additional care. Flowering bushes are best not to transplant at all!
