my lilacs did not bloom this summer, I read somewhere that they need nitrogen and I can sprinkle wood ash around the bush to make it bloom. It is a young bush I planted a yr ago. can anyone confirm this!!
as long as it's firewood and don't have any chemicals in it like paint etc.
A plant that young and just transplanted could take a year or three to bloom. Give it time.
Be careful how much nitrogen you add.Too much
and you will only wind up with a very green
very big bush.Also keep in mind that Lilacs
bloom on 2 year old wood,so you may have to wait another year.2 feedings per year of all
purpose 10-10-10 fertilizer applied in Spring and fall will do just fine.Good luck.
