With almost all plants the colour is fixed in it's DNA. You can bleach out the colour of some plants such as clematis by siting them in full sun, though you wouldn't want to You can change the colour of hydrangeas by changing the pH of the soil, but whatever colour your lilac is, I reckon that's how it's going to stay.

How to give feedback about the new site

Figrat, not sure if I can help, but when you click on the green tree just above my message (third icon from the right) you get the following window:

http://s3.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/7005.jpg?width=384&height=350&mode=max

 You click 'select' and navigate to the file on your computer, and then click 'upload' . the file needs to be of a certain size in dimensions and bytes - I think 1 mb is the biggest - so you may need to downsize your file. Hope this is not a case of teaching grandma to suck eggs and you already know all this, and have a different problem that I have not helped with!!

Hovering over the thread title opens a text box that gives the first 80 or so words of the message. I scan through the titles to get the gist of the question before opening the thread, and find it more useful than the short message description (which is not always filled in). Not sure whether making the description box bigger would encourage longer descriptions,  or whether it would be more useful to me than the 'hover' facility. 

can you have too much night

One or two indoor 'gardeners' in a town near to where I live have discovered the benefit of 24 hour light for growing a certain 'recreational' crop. Every window is 100% blacked out (to minimise lost light, of course). The police have been using helicopters and infrared sensors to detect properties giving out abnormal amounts of heat.

Bookertoo - 

there are far better and exciting bulb sellers out there.  I don't think I am allowed to say their names, 

I am not sure what you are / are not allowed to do on this site. I often post a link to a commercial site where it helps answer a question, including ones where someone is trying to find a plant or garden tool. I can't find a link to site policy. Do you know if there is one?

New site - bugs

I know you are aware of the intermittent appearance of the 'view last post first' link on top left, but i have just noticed that on the following thread the link is visible, but doesn't take you beyond page 1 - at least not when I tried it just now.
