Plant magnolias in a sunny or semi shaded position with protection from cold winds and hard spring frosts. Magnolias prefer a rich, moist, well drained, acid to neutral soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve the soil prior to planting, mixing it thoroughly and deeply. Magnolia plants establish quicker when their roots are shaded. Following planting, apply a mulch of rotted bark chips, manure or garden compost, taking care not to mound it around the stem of the plant.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young magnolias are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted bark chips or garden compost to the base of the plant. Magnolias require little pruning other than to maintain their shape and remove damaged stems or crossing stems.

Like the above my first order with you was a free offer plus postage for Magnolia from telegraph garden, I received it in a box and when I opened it I thought I was sent just a stick! I It was ordered on 29/3/2014 but does not seem to be budding as a previous reviewer stated. Is this usual or when should I exopsect th see evidence of life. ?

I received this magnolia as a free offer, plus postage from the Martin Lewis site. It has just arrived, around 2 foot tall with flower buds. Looks a sturdy well grown plant. Thank you for sending such a good one.
