Post #8015884

I have a Lilac growing - or not growing - under a very shady tree. With out moving it, the plant will never have a chance to grow , and I will never be able to move it. My question is, would be possible to use grow lights outside? Are grow lights the same thing as any other lights? Any recomendations will be appreciated. Thank you.

You can a better chance of a move if you first slice down with a shovel all around the lilac about the size dirt ball you plan to move , And then leave it in the ground for the roots to establish back from the cut then move it in the fall.
