I planted my Stellata and it had wonderfull flowerr's, however, i noticed in August slight browning of the leaves (at the tips). Now in mid September the browning is increasing. Is this just the normal effects of a Deciduous plant? I have checked for slugs and other problems, but I have found none. I don't know the Ph value but it's planted in a clay but well drained soil.

Magnolia Stellata is deciduous. At this time of year the leaves will turn brown and start to fall. Look for new swollen shoots that are left on the tree, these are the flower buds that will open next spring. Ensure you water the plant through the spring and summer during its second year, as well as the first.
