I have a lilac bush that doesn't get flowers. I planted two of them last year, both the same kind. One had a few flowers last year and is producing buds for flowers this year. The second had no flowers last year and has no flower buds forming this year. Are there some that do not get flowers?
They all produce flowers. It is likely a phosphorus deficiency. Fertilize it with a phosphorus rich fertilizer to help it bloom.
I have a stump that is in the middle of a very old lilac bush. We have cut this tree down but, of course, it sprouts back up every year. I am afraid to use any chemicals for fear it will kill this lilac bush. Any ideas for a natural approach for destroying this nusince without damaging the lilac bush?
If you can get to it to drill holes in it, this will help it along faster. Filling the holes with a fertilizer can also speed it along.
For the suckers that grow up from the stump, when you cut them off, paint the cut with Roundup. This will help with killing the stump without harming the lilac.
I was told that lilac bushes attract termites. Is this true? We want to plant one but need to know where would be the best place to put it.
I have never heard of or known this to be a problem with lilacs. For the most part, they are good foundation shrubs.
When is the best time to transplant a lilac bush?
Most transplanting takes place in spring or fall (preferably fall). If you can ensure that the majority of the roots and surrounding soil is lifted and replanted in similar growing conditions, you'll have a greater chance of success. To reduce shock, trimming may help.
