Lilacs - Gardener's Toolbox Class - Fayette County

Fayette County Extension Service
1140 Harry Sykes Way
Lexington, KY


Old fashioned lilacs are some of the most beloved, fragrant and spectacularly showy shrubs…..for about two weeks. Unfortunately, that leaves us with a large nondescript plant for another 50 weeks each year. Newer varieties feature smaller flowers on compact plants that bloom for most of the summer. We will cover all types of lilacs from small dwarf varieties to 40 foot trees. We will address failure to bloom and disease prevention. Take home small plants of an improved variety to plant at home. Cost: $10.00.

Sign up early for classes to avoid being turned away because class is full. ALL classes, including the “Free” ones are “PRE-REGISTRATION” only. If you need to cancel, you must do so 2 weeks prior to the class time to receive a refund or credit for a different class. If handouts and/or plants are not picked up 3 days after class, items will be donated. Click on the link below for registration form.
