Lilac Transplanting

Anonymous added on November 7, 2010 | Answered

I bought a yellow lilac bush this past spring and since it arrived early and I didn't know where to put it, I planted it into a large pot on my patio. It's done pretty well and is showing new buds as we speak (November). I live on Long Island, NY and it’s getting cold out. Since I'm still unsure where to plant it and didn't think fall was a good time anyway, what should I do so that it survives the winter? Wrap it? Put it in the unheated garage? Bring it indoors? Leave it be?

Your unheated garage would be good, or near the foundation of the house with the pot buried in mulch. If you do put it in your garage, make sure to water it once a month or so to keep it alive.
