      The lilacs arrived nicely packaged, each root ball was in a plastic bag (the dirt was on the dry side), I removed the plants putting them in a pail of water to soak for awhile before planting in the ground. Within days one bush was budding out with new leaves, within a week all of them were producing leaves. We are in zone 7, which from what I have read is marginal for these lilac to produce spring time blooms, but I have my fingers crossed.

      Stuck them in the ground, and the buds opened in three days. Looks like they are going to do great.
