Have I ruined my new Lilac tree ?
We bought a 'Charles Joly' Lilac tree last week and I pre-soaked it in a bucket prior to planting. However my husband didn't get round to digging the planting hole as it's been torrential heavy rain here recently. I clean forgot it was soaking in the bucket for four days. I have since read Lilacs don't like sitting in water in the ground.
Am about to plant it today and apart from one or two slightly withered leaves it looks fine. I'm a bit worried though regards to the soaking it's had
