When growing lilac in patio containers, use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the lilac tree at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in full sun. Alternatively, plant lilac standards directly into borders in moist, free draining, neutral to alkaline soil.
Feed and water regularly. As plants increase in size they will require repotting into increasingly larger pots. Dwarf lilacs need little pruning other than the removal of faded flowers and occasional removal of only the oldest stems, as the plant ages.
We will do our best to ship your plants or bulbs to you at the ideal time for planting as stated against each product. We recommend that you prepare your soil, planting beds or patio containers ahead of time so you are ready to plant out, or pot on, just as soon as your order arrives. You will find the name of the variety printed on the top line of the address label on your package. Please ensure that you open the packaging immediately and carefully read through the instruction leaflet provided. For greatest success, please pot on or plant out as soon as possible, following the cultural instructions enclosed with your order.

    I purchased two of these just before Christmas. At that time, all there was was a small bark. I planted them in two containers and waited. And now, it has sprouted the beautiful lilac flowers with the wonderful fragrance. I really love these. They are a wonderful site in my garden and I look forward to watching them grow more.
