Lilac not blooming
My Lilac is about 20 years old, and very large. It gets buds on it and than they dry up. I have 2 flowers that opened this year. We have cleared away any bushes close around it. It gets mostly morning sunshine for about 4-6 hours. We have a lot of oak trees around our yard. Some across the road. It has shade from across the road trees until about 9:00 AM. Than full sun 1-2:00 PM. It has grown to about 8-10 foot tall. We never fertilize lawn or trees. I did bloom when it was smaller for a year or 2.
