Ordered these from Stark Bros a few years ago, and they are blooming this year for the first time. The color is magnificent and the scent heavenly. So I wanted a few more to space around the house.

My Charles Joly French lilacs has been planted for 5 years and have yet to bloom. I have added lime but to no avail. Why no blooms?
Ronilee L on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. There could be many culprits. Lilacs do not like clay soil/wet feet, nor do they like too much nitrogen. The only fertilizer you should be giving your lilacs is a little bone meal, which encourages bloom production rather than leaf production. Also, not enough sun will result in a leafy shrub with few/no blooms. The lime is likely not making a difference unless you have highly acidic soil.
