Magnolias reward the gardener with year on year increasing beauty.
They are very easy to grow in any soil which is not very alkaline.
The most important rule is to remember that they
will not tolerate deep planting or prolonged periods of water logging.
If in doubt plant shallow, or mound plant, incorporating reasonable
amounts of organic matter and a little slow release fertilizer. Mulch
in spring, but avoid the mulch building up to such an extent that the
tree becomes deep planted.
The roots of magnolias are fleshy and
brittle, and if broken can rot back to the bole, so treat the roots
with great care when planting, and do not stamp down too hard on the
newly planted tree! Stakes should be driven in at an angle, and never
be forced through the root ball.
