The 6 Wedgewood Blue lilacs I purchased about ten years ago from Fox Hill Lilac Nursery are in full bloom at my home in Massachusetts and gorgeous. I was new to gardening when I ordered them but felt I was ordering from a lilac "specialist" in Maine. I was right. The lilacs were small when I received them, which I preferred for planting. They were and still are very healthy. We have enjoyed them every year and every year they are more beautiful.
I have other lilacs, but prefer the shorter size and beautiful color of Wedgewood Blue. These are not as "leggy" as the other taller lilacs. I recommend Fox Hill Nursery for lilacs.

Just purchased 2 lilacs from this company. The transaction was straighforward, easy, and the plants received were very healthy with excellent root systems. Seller communicated via email in a very prompt manner and the plants were also very well packed. They've been planted and are leafing out wonderfully.

I just ordered 7 lilac plants and they arrived the day after I placed the order! All the plants had nice root systems and looked very healthy. Although Eric mentioned that they were on the small side (he discounted the price), they were actually bigger than I had expected. The packaging was great - they were still very moist when I took them out of the box. I will look forward to placing more orders in the future.

I have ordered lilacs from Fox Hill twice now and have nothing but positive things to say about the owner. He is a very honest individual and manages to successfully run a business that provides hard-to-find lilacs to the public while also having a full-time job unrelated to this work. His business style is unique and quite refreshing in my opinion. I will continue to do business with him every year, as he treats you with respect when you do the same.

I ordered lilac fertilizer from them earlier this year, and it arrived quickly. Eric was very helpful providing lilac information via email.

I am glad to see that everyone else experiences good mail order service from Fox Hill Nursery. I have the luxury of visiting Eric in person and I can tell you that the company he runs is just dynamite. And for those of you whole haven't tried it, try his lilac food. I don't think you can beat it!

WONDERFUL! Knowledgeable and UNBELIEVABLE variety. Best place I've found for lilacs. Plants shipped in super condition and planting/care instructions very helpful. Thank goodness there are still people who are committed to preserving and expanding REAL lilacs!

If you love lilacs you GOTTA try this nursery.We had ordered quite a while ago, then moved several times; the catalogs lost track of us, we lost the address/ ph # & so on. We'd begun to despair that the nursery no longer existed, then suddenly just this year we re-discovered it online.The plants are beautiful, healthy, and tough -- you won't find a lot of the varieties 'just anywhere' -- and no place is more ready & willing to share info on selection-siting-care or whatever else you need to know. When last we ordered we were stuck with several difficult sites: dreadful soil texture, harsh exposures, limited space. I wrote Fox Hill (you can email now of course!) with site details, asking doubtfully if lilacs could possibly survive there. They responded promptly with a wonderful choice of named varieties to suit, suggested a few simple easy things to do to help the plants survive, & very kindly advised me not to worry myself to death about their lilacs if I ordered them, lol. We did order and the Fox Hill folks were right; those great plants not only survived, but flourished. Personally I think Fox Hill should be the first place for all lilac-lovers to check but most especially for those living east of the Mississippi.
