Hello, and Thanks for using the Ask an Expert System

Your lilacs are budding because of the unusually warm weather we have been experiencing. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do to change the weather, or alter the behavior of your plants. We can only wait and watch to see what will happen to our plants this year.

If you have additional questions you can contact your nearest Penn State Extension Office.
