Question From: WASHINGTON
Q: I have 5 Miss Kim lilacs on the west side of our house in western Washington state. They have been there for 3 years and have grown into beautiful, full bushes about 4' tall. However, they never bloom! How can I help these beauties bloom and emit the fragrance they are known for?.
Lack of sun and too much fertilizer are the two most common reasons for lack of bloom. Lilacs need full sun ( six hours or more of direct sun) to bloom. Get out your shovel and move them. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy..
