Should I plant my Madame Lemoine Lilac in a tub or in the garden,I feel that maybe it would be fare better in the garden,any advice on this subject would be much appreciated,thank you.



You're right, Numbty, it would be better in the ground. Make sure you've enough room for it though - it gets tree sized eventually.

Thank you Bamboo,I have a feeling now that space is going to be an issue for this shrub...oh dear,unless I can persuade hubby to take out a conifer to accomodate the Lilac... here`s hoping!!

You can always remove the conifer in a year or 3 once the lilac's got going...
