Re. Magnolia Stellata


By ponty


Thanks, Bamboo and Moon Grower. I guess you are right about the planting time. I did water it well at the time but went away in early August. There was no rain at the time so I guess the trouble started at that time. Do the phots suggest any alternative cause?

That's sad - I hate losing plants. What a shame!

Magnolias hate root disturance. Spring planting is the best chance of getting them established

Very, very belated thanks Andrew. My apologies. I thought I had replied saying that I had subsequently staked it more effectively. In my, then, ignorance (not that there's been much improvement on that score!) I was running a question and a blog at the same time. My thanks to all who advised on both. The "buds" still appear to be O.K.

Oh, I do hope it turns out to be alive and well, Ponty! Keep us posted.

Will do, in the Spring, Spritz. Thanks.
