Lilac Bushes

I have a bunch of lilacs growing in my yard and would like to plant some more and finish the row my mother started, How do I get new plant's from the existing old growth bushes.

I have two lilac bushes in the front of my house. One is doing great, the other has what looks like a white covering on the leaves. And this year it did not bloom as well. What could be wrong, and what do I do. And when is a good time to prune them?

Thanks Maureen

My grandmother used to transplant almost anything using a slip of the mother plant cut at an angle and stuck into a potatoe buried under a quart mason jar. Tater would sprout but would also keep the new roots wet and nourished.......Dell

Dig some of the shoots that grow up around the base of the old growth. Transplant were desired and water, they will spread.

That sounds easy enough, now if I can get through all the branches and find some shoot's we'll be in good shape, Thanks for the help.
