Hello, I bought a Magnolia Grandiflora 'Exmouth' with the intention of wall training it. However my husband has had second thoughts about allowing me to plant it on a wall (foundation concerns).
I'm now going to plant it out and allow it to grow into a big specimen tree but I'm worried about snow and winds as I've read it can be fragile.
I'm wondering whether anyone has experience of how resilient they are?
(I'm in an edge of village location in central Norfolk. Where I'm planning to plant it is not particularly exposed but the shelter immediately around it is all fairly low level at the moment (other young trees)
My magnolia grandiflora has a few thin branches which are growing out into our small garden. I would like to remove/prune these but having searched various online sites and gardening books they don't seem to agree on the best time of year to do this. Please can you give advice. Thank you
