For lilacs

Tip 1

How do I plant my lilac?

Since lilacs from the Parfum de Nature brand have been cultivated in pots and have a firm root ball you can plant them throughout the year.


Tip 2

This is how to make a beautiful lilac bouquet

Most lilacs flower around Mothers day. The ideal time to surprise her with a fragrant bouquet! When you cut a flowering stem from the shrub, the buds underneath the cutting point will form shoots.


Tip 3

How can I enjoy my lilac for longer?

By planting various coloured lilacs next to each other you can enjoy the wonderful fragrances for 4 to 6 weeks. If it’s a cool spring then it will only be beneficial to the length of the flowering period and the colours of the flowers.


Tip 4

Which fertiliser should I use?

The best time to fertilise is early in the spring, the plant will then have the fertiliser when it requires it most. If planted in a pot on a patio, you will need to add fertiliser annually due to the limited buffer accommodated by a pot. If planted in the garden, you will usually not be required to add fertiliser.


Tip 5

How do I attract butterflies?

As we enjoy the first sunny days of spring you will also see butterflies appearing once again. Life is returning to the garden.


Tip 6

How should I prune my lilac?

In theory lilacs don’t need pruning. But by pruning you will get a fuller shrub with plenty of young and healthy branches.


Tip 7

Why isn't my lilac flowering?

The lilac has been placed in a spot where theres not enough sunlight. For optimal flowering, lilacs require at least 6 hours of direct sunlight.


Tip 8

What is the best place for my lilac?

Your lilac should preferably be placed in a sunny spot in the garden or in a large pot on the patio. Lilacs need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day to flower optimally. Further, ensure there is plenty of space around the plant.
