I have a clay based soil. How successful would i be with Magnolia 'Stellata'?



this particular magnolia should be ok in your soil but likes organic matter so add plenty to the planting hole and back fill with a mixture of your soil and the compost

Also be sure to spread compost regularly (once or twice yearly) on the soil under the canopy to maintain the organic content of the soil.
