I have a lilac that I bought for my husband 3 years ago. it was in a pot for 1.5 years then we moved next door and I planted in a bright but shady place. 2 years later no blooms yet. Last year I moved it to a morning sun area and it made new leaves but never bloomed. Due to water pipes needing the Lilac space, it is again in a pot and spent the winter under an oak tree. It is showing new growth but I am wondering what to do to get it to bloom. I am in 8A zone.
