The Q&A Archives: Fertilizing Lilacs

Question: What fertilizer to use on lilacs?

Answer: A spring application of 5-10-5 will promote blooming in your lilacs. Avoid fertilizers high in nitrogen (the first number on the label) or you'll end up with lots of lush, green growth - at the expense of flowers.

Best wishes with your garden!
