: My mom has a huge, beautiful lilac bush that is over 60 years old and came from her mother's home. I have tried to take cuttings with no luck. The garden center suggested cutting it but it is quite woody and I am afraid to damage it. I really want a piece of the past at my home. Any suggestions?

Hi P,
I do understand how you feel about your lilac. You could dig up a suckering plant at the outside of the bush or take a look here for ways to propagate them.

Hope this helps,
