could I grow a Syringa in a large pot?


  • Thank you, I will look for a dwarf variety.

  • Syringa 'Minuet' is a lovely dwarf lilac image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • Thank you, I will have a look at this.

  • Hi Little Poll,

    I don’t know if you’re still looking for ideas, but I bought a Syringa Boomerang Pink Perfume this autumn which only grows to 1.5m max. I’ve planted it in a border, but I don’t see why it couldn’t be quite happy in large pot.

    I chose this one for its repeat flowering throughout the spring-autumn and I wanted a dwarf one so it was easier for me to manage without ladders (our last home had a lilac that was about 15’ tall!)

    Good luck!


  • Thank you, I will be out shopping!
