Japanese Lilac Fertilizer

Asked June 20, 2020, 9:07 PM EDT

Our Japanese tree lilac looks a bit sparse this year. I’m thinking it needs some fertilizer. Can you suggest something, please.

Greetings! You are getting to the point of summer where it is too late to fertilize.

It is best to do your fertilizing in early spring or better yet-- late fall. Here is a guide that you can follow. https://www.canr.msu.edu/uploads/files/Nutrition_and_fertilization_BertCreggfinal.pdf
