My first thought is that it looks like quite a small pot for this big plant. I have lost one of these plants since moving here - but my neighbour has a really big one. Perhaps it just needs some tender loving care in the root area!

Magnolia prefer an acidic soil - therefore potted up in Ericaceous compost/loam mix would have been more appropriate. Alternatively a feed of Sequestrine at recommended times (on box) should help address the iron deficiency which can be seen in the leaves. Remove from an area that gets morning sun.
Magnolias are notorious for not liking root disturbance so you may find that the plant will die or take a long time to recover.
Best of luck.

Hi Elaine
Thank you for the replies.
Sorry to sound stupid but do you mean something like tomorite?
We picked the magnolia up from our local tip.
We have re potted it. We have a garden with approximately 300 pots!
When the weather gets better i will put on some photos.

Looks like the plant is in a container, definitely needs fertilizer from the look of the yellow leaves, there is sun scald too on the leaves, other than that it looks healthy.

All plants lose their old leaves, including broad leafed and conifers, I don't know when this is happening, things are still dormant, so it should not be happening this time of year.

Magnolia Grandiflora 'Exmouth'

Question from DAVID STANDING

In forum: Trees and shrubs

Hi
I have just joined Shoot and was wondering if anybody can answer my question on the Magnolia Grandiflora 'Exmouth'.
Some of the leaves are brown and brittle, is this normal?
Will the leaves fall anyway or should it be treated?
Thank you
Dave

Thanks Catherine, I might rig up a shelter of sorts for the first couple of winters and see how we go!

Hi there,
We have a very large magnolia grandiflora in a corner of our front garden. I have no idea what variety it is, since it was there when we moved into the house.
It is over 15 ft tall and pretty much looks after itself - I try and remember to give it a top dressing of compost each year, but have to admit I don't always get around to it.
As a relatively large tree, it seems to withstand wind and bad weather with no adverse effects. We are on the edge of Southampton, so it's a bit of a microclimate, the Isle of Wight usually protects us from the worst of the rain etc but we do experience high winds - and last winter was as bad here as it was in many other parts of the UK.
I would anticipate that the other young trees around it in the place you are intending to plant it would give it adequate shelter - ours has stood up to everything the past two hard winters have thrown at it, and looks as splendid as ever today in the spring sunshine.
Good luck with it - it is a truly stunning tree when fullgrown and in bloom.

Hi Marie
I'm in SW Suffolk with a similar dilemma. We were given the same magnolia last year and I was going to plant it against the house but was advised against it because of the size it gets to. So I've planted it about 1.5m away from a garden wall. Then the snow came! It snapped off the central shoot (it's still quite small as it's young) but I must say it doesn't seem to be any the worse for losing that leader shot. It's also in quite a windy spot but is definitely holding its own.

Does any one have a magnolia grandiflora 'Exmouth' planted in the open?

Question from Marie

In forum: Magnolia grandiflora 'Exmouth'

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)

Thanks
Marie
