Can I grow this in a pot or should it be in the ground?

Hi, Zoe,
You can grow most anything in a pot but the plant will determine how much maintenance it will need. Since this particular lilac gets quite large, you will want to eventually have it in the largest pot it can be in given the spot you want to place. Don't start too large straight away if the plant is small - you'll want to gradually pot up until you to the max container size you want. Once it is in the largest pot desired, you will need to root prune every 3 years or so, make sure it gets regular water & feeding, and keep it pruned as per its pruning requirements. So, it is possible, just takes some work.
