It's Easy to Plant your Miss Kim Lilac


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Miss Kim Lilac.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Miss Kim Lilac gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Miss Kim Lilac again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Miss Kim Lilac
Miss Kim Lilac was shipped promptly, packed perfectly and is doing well. I purchased her late in the season, so I've not enjoyed any blooms yet, since she blooms in the Spring. That being said, she is doing well and shows significant new growth. I look forward to wonderful sniffing next Spring!

DO YOU TRIM IT ?
MARY M on Mar 8, 2015
Best Answer: I have a huge deer problem. Over time, after trying all sorts of deer deterrents, I've learned not to place "deer food" out in the open. I placed Miss Kim along my driveway mid-way down the driveway and so far, the deer have not touched her. Deer don't come that far down my driveway - thank heaven!

Does it bloom off of old or new growth... Are you able to trim/ prune to size?

Is this plant "deer resistant"?
Claire F on Mar 3, 2015
Best Answer: Lilacs are considered more deer resistant than most plants, but we all know that a hungry deer will eat most anything.

does this return ? do humming birds like this ?
MARY M on Mar 8, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, this plant returns in the areas where it is hardy - zones 4-8, which includes most of the continental U.S. And hummingbirds love the nectar! Miss Kim blooms late spring and early summer, which is great timing for hummingbirds migrating up for the summer.

How long does sit bloom?
Carol R on May 25, 2015
Best Answer: It seemed the blooming on mine was short lived (maybe a week), I had just planted mine about 2-3 weeks prior to blooming so that may have had an impact on duration. Higher hopes for next year, its growing great right now!!

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
