I have purchased a magnolia that produces beautiful blooms but the next day the blooms just turn brown and shrivel. I have tried to keep it out of direct sun. Help



When you say you have "tried to keep it out of direct sun", that sort of implies that you haven't succeeded too well. They do benefit from a lightly shaded position, so the flowers this year may well have been fried by the sun - the other possibility this year is cold nights, we had a particularly cold May, with frost quite often at night, this would cause this problem too.
