I,ve just cut a bunch of lilac from my frien,s garden, it smells so divine I must have some! The only place I have really is a north facing fence, will it flower here? If not I could try a dwarf one and maybe have in a large pot, does anyone have any advice?

There's a lovely white lilac growing opposite our house in a north-east facing spot and it's doing really well - it's probably up to our bedroom windowsill in height - but of course you can keep them under that height.

They seem to grow in any aspect round here without too much trouble

Mine is on a north facing wall, just gets the last of the sun at the end of the day. It flowers fine.
