Lilacs are a great asset to the garden in late spring, flowering abundantly.
Gardens can, however, be unpredictable, and we’ve suffered years with hardly any flowers at all. A flowerless lilac is rather boring, so we do our best to keep them happy!
As soon as they have finished flowering, we dead-head them and feed them with Vitax Q4.
We rejuvenate them by taking out some older stems at the base, thus reducing congestion. They can be lightened further by inside-out pruning in the winter: removing some smaller branches inside the shrub.
