#ProPlantTips for Care:

The Agincourt Lilac likes to dance in the sunshine and keep its feet dry with fast-draining soil. Plant Lilacs in enriched organic soil with moderate moisture access for best results. If you use nitrogen fertilizer, avoid getting any near the root ball. Mulch the area well so you won't have to worry about any lawn fertilizer around the base of this plant.

Agincourt is deer-resistant but if you live with deer in your area, apply repellent spray on planting day and frequently after. Deer are hungry and curious, and you want to train them to leave your plants alone. Reapply according to the label.

Air circulation is important for Lilacs, so find a breezy place for them to perform at their best. It's best to avoid low spots or heavily enclosed locations that trap airflow. Fertilize in early spring and again in mid-summer with an organic and all-purpose fertilizer, following directions on the package.

Avoid removing the blooms or pruning the plant at any time except immediately after the flowers fade, to prevent removing next year's flowers. Don't miss a single bloom! Follow these easy Pruning steps for the best flowering. You can prune these flowering shrubs into small multi-stemmed tree-form for a unique specimen and garden highlight!
