Syringa' Josee Reblooming Lilac General Care Info

General Care Instructions:

Spring: In spring, focus on pruning lilac bushes immediately after they bloom to remove spent flowers and shape the plant. Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering. Water deeply during dry spells to ensure adequate hydration, especially for newly planted or young lilacs.

Summer: Throughout the summer months, continue to water regularly, especially during periods of prolonged heat or drought. Mulch around the base of the plant to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Monitor for pests such as aphids or powdery mildew, and treat as necessary to prevent damage to the foliage.

Fall: As fall approaches, reduce watering frequency as the plant prepares for dormancy. Avoid fertilizing in late summer or fall to prevent stimulating new growth susceptible to frost damage. Consider pruning to remove any dead or diseased branches, as well as to shape the plant and improve air circulation within the canopy.

Winter: Protect lilac bushes from winter cold and wind by applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plant and wrapping young or vulnerable stems with burlap. Avoid heavy pruning in winter, as this can remove flower buds and reduce spring blooms. Monitor for signs of winter damage, such as frost cracks or desiccation, and address accordingly in early spring.
