This is a wonderful specimen plant for the garden and is great for biodiversity too as it attracts bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. Height and spread: 7m (22'). Supplied in a 9cm pot.

Culinary information: Adding the fragrant flowers to cream cheese or even yoghurt for a hint of lemon flavour. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Grow lilac in borders in moist, free draining, neutral to alkaline soil in full sun. Lilac enjoys a rich fertile soil, so dig in plenty of well rotted manure or compost prior to planting. Alternatively, plant lilac in large patio containers, using a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Water well after planting.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, Lilac plants require only occasional attention. Deadhead lilac flowers as they fade. Lilacs need little pruning except the occasional removal of misplaced or damaged stems in late winter or early spring.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
