I have an old and fairly large California Lilac, but for some reason it did not overwinter well. One large limb (about 1/3 of the plant) is dead. Is it OK to cut the dead branch(s) off? When?
Cut it off Joan, it'll soon grow back. Many were lost due to the really cold weather over the winter. Guess they don't get -10 in California.
