Starting up a nursery

I think there are plenty of suppliers of bedding and all the usual suspects. You need something to make you stand out from the rest, a speciality, like Richard's clematis. you can add in some cheap and cheerfuls as 'bread and butter'

You can spot the ones you can't propagate and sell, they all come labeled 'Plant Breeders Rights' but if you're doubtful about any if you google the full name I'm sure it will come up.

Open to the public or on-line supplying?

Lilac seeds

My lilac is still in flower. unless you live outside the uk it's unlikely that you have collected ripe seed.

Seed sowing for shrubs can be made to sound complicated, weeks in and out of fridge and lots of messing around. All you need to do is follow what the plant is doing. When it starts to drop seed, collect and sow. Don't save it, sow it. Put it in gritty compost, leave it outside someone shady, leave it alone, it will get watered when it rains, frozen when winter comes. That's how it works and it will germinate when it's ready.

Fancy cultivars of lilac don't come true from seed

What is this plant?

Or choose those that aren't top heavy, they look much nicer than big ones with scaffolding

Iris foetidissima?  Purple/lilac flowers in late spring and then red berries in autumn and winter.
