I am in zone 5 and I have many lilacs. The lilac needs a cold-dormant time of year to rejuvenate for spring flowers and greenery. Mine lose their leaves every fall and return in spring~

I planted lilac bushes for the first time this year. I leave in Knoxville TN - How soon should I expect lilacs? The bushes were about 3 ft tall.

Also is there any fertilizing I should do?

THank you,
