: A friend of my wifes said to rototil around the base of the bush and then put coffee grounds and epsom salt down. Is there any truth to this.

Dear Paul,

Please don't rototill anything around the base of your lilac. It would be better to simply leave the plant alone. Simply watering and fertilizing the plant is a smarter idea. Rototilling around the roots of the plant isn't a good idea because it may destroy the roots. What are the coffee beans used for? Are they acidic?
