The hole for your new tree must be at least twice the size of the root ball. The root ball should be planted about an inch or two below the soil level. In heavy clay soils, the hole should be larger and amended with organics such as compost and peat moss.
Please remember that all lilacs should be lightly pruned and fertilized after blooming, not before! To encourage a strong root system, you might want to pick off the faded blooms to let the plant focus on establishing its root systems.
