MAGNOLIAS AND WHEN AND HOW HARD CAN ONE PRUNE?
I have a friend who asked my advice the other day on pruning Magnolias. Her "Tree" is some 30 years old and has been moved twice as it has family sentimental ties. Until it reached its present site just three years ago it did not grow much and certainly did not flower!!! Now - it has gone mad - obviously approves its recent home and flowers profusely - BUT has nearly obscured the front path and doorway!!
I have a couple of magnolias myself but they are not in need of pruning....and although I have some ideas....I figured I should get professional advice as to when and how hard she dare prune it back as I would hate her to lose it as a result of my incorrect info.
I should have said that she lives in the north east of scotland - just west of Aberdeen.
