I don’t think I would have ever imagined I’d own a few lilacs I purchased in a box. In today’s post I share with you the Late Mauve Lilac shrubs in my home garden.
Lilacs In A Box
I guess Lilacs in a Box can be kind of misleading – but they really were in a box when my husband bought them in the store. Today’s vlog you will find my new lilacs my husband brought home for me from Costco. You will see what the plants look like and other tips and tricks. Be sure to watch the video and don’t forget to comment or share on social to let me know what you think.
Can you believe these were only $16 at Costco? The roots of the plants in the box look amazing. If you had a hard time viewing this video just reach out to me or follow on my Bren Haas YouTube Channel.
You all know I’ve been growing different lilacs for years.. right? Here is my post about Pruning Lilac Shrubs.
My husband went to grab some items we needed at home from Costco while getting gas. I’ve not been to Costco since before the Covid19 / Corona Virus hit my state of Ohio. As my husband went into the store he text me images ( below) . I guess this is how we shop until this epidemic is over. (pray it is over soon … I miss shopping at Costco).
Hubby found the trees I mention in the vlog above at Costco too.
WOW… I really hope these get sold quick… bare-root plants including lilacs like these really need to be kept in a cool location and put in the ground as soon as possible.
In The Greenhouse
YES… you read that correctly. I was in the greenhouse and not the dome for this project. My greenhouse was sitting empty so I decided to use it as a safe haven for plants from our Spring cold snaps. Oliver loves it in the unheated greenhouse. I guess I should say he LOVES it outside anywhere. He sat on the chair in the greenhouse watching my transplant for about an hour. What a good Doggie!
Just look at how nice those barefoot lilacs were out of the box. It is super important to get these in the ground or a container as soon as you can. Be sure to watch for frost dates. These lilacs were inside for most of their life so I will baby them until closer to May 1 when it is safe to get them in the ground. Check your hardiness zone to verify your frost dates.
