Why Won't My Lilacs Bloom?
 

If you live where lilacs thrive, here’s how to get more flower power:

    • Prune at the right time: Flower buds are formed the previous year, so don’t prune until after the lilac has bloomed – and do it before the 4th of July.

    • Provide plenty of sun: Lilacs are best with at least six hours of sun a day. If your lilac is in a shady site, consider planting another one in full sun.

  • Watch the turf: If you use high-nitrogen fertilizer to “green up” your lawn, the overspray can affect your lilac by triggering lots of foliage and few blooms. Apply fertilizer with care or – better yet – not at all.
