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

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.

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.

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.

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 Angie
Thank you for the message.
We will buy the sequestrine and move the magnolia.
Thank you for the advice

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!
