Lilacs Make Excellent Privacy Screens
Have a view you hate? Hide it with the graceful, wind-tossed form of Lilac bushes.
With proper care, they basically live forever! Farmers even include them on the south side of their established windbreaks to add some color and movement.
Low Lilac hedges are darling, too! You can perk up your curb appeal or enliven a ho-hum foundation planting with right-sized Tinkerbelle Lilac.
Rugged Lilacs even tolerate a little salt. Use them as a showy street planting to screen off the hustle-bustle of everyday life.
Best Practices When Planting New Lilac Bushes
Choose the right spot to plant them to keep your Lilac happy and healthy. Lilacs must have full sun, with at least six hours of direct sunshine a day.
Good air circulation is also an important consideration. Please don't plant your Lilacs too close to a fence or wall...they need airflow all the way around them.
Well-drained soil is important, too. If you have soggy soil, you'll need to create a raised bed with additional soil brought in to improve your drainage.
Spring and fall are both great choices when to plant Lilac trees. But did you know you can successfully plant anytime as long as the ground isn't frozen?
Use our Nature Hills Root Booster with these investment landscape plants. This symbiotic formula never "wears out" in it's support of the tiny feeder roots.
Dig a hole no deeper than the container, but twice as wide. Backfill the soil around your plant, then saturate with water to eliminate air pockets at the root level.
Ongoing Care Tips for Lilac Bushes
Proper techniques for watering Lilac bushes are all about a consistent schedule. It's most important to pay attention during the first season as the roots are getting established.
Add a three-inch layer of mulch around the root system to keep it cool. Pull it back away from the stems, and refresh the layer periodically.
Prune to shape your Lilacs after the flowers are finished; snip the spent blooms off if you don't want to see the developing Lilac fruit. Every few years, remove the thickest, oldest stems out at ground level to rejuvenate your Lilac shrubs.
Lilac bush not growing? Try fertilizing it, or moving it to a sunnier spot...just don't plant it too deep!
