Care of a Magnolia bush
I have had a magnolia bush for some 5 years or more, initially it was in a large tub approx (30" across) filled with the correct compost and fed as per the instructions it sat on my patio out of the morning sun. Each year it has provided plenty of large buds and each year many of them turned brown and fell, other gave a display of white flowers. Last year I prepared a large hole, mixed in the correct compost and planted the bush in a sunny location out of the wind and early morning sun, this spring there are only one or two buds, these turned brown and fell. Many of the leaves have fell over the winter leaving approx a third. Please advise what I have done wrong !!!
