What's the best fertilizer for my lilac?

Great question!

The best time to fertilize a lilac is early spring. Be certain to look for one that is either well balanced with similar NPK numbers. Or, one that has a higher middle number. P (phosphorus) is the nutrient that helps grow flowers. A fertilizer with high nitrogen (N) will just grow leaves and no flowers.

Thanks for writing!
