How do I care for my Syringa vulgaris (Lilac)?
Posted by Suttons Staff on 09 December 2014 02:59 PM

Lilacs require a neutral to alkaline, well drained soil and a sunny position. Remove dead flower heads before the fruit forms on newly planted bushes. Remove crossing and misplaced shoots in late winter or early spring.
