I have a magnolia tree that I've been struggling with for years. The problem is no or very few blooms. I've tried a number of things. Still no use.


Any ideas?

A Magnolia tree planted from seed can take 15 to 20 yrs. to bloom. If you plant a tree, it can take 3 or more yrs. to bloom. Here are some tips that might encourage it to bloom faster.

I am new at growing magnolia trees. I harvested seeds from my son's southern magnolia last year and planted them, I have around 100 seedlings. My question is about when to fertilize my seedling, and if i should leave them in a cold frame or bring them in for the winter. They were planted in small pots to start, then transplanted in to larger pots. I have some that are over a year old, some 9 months, some 6 months old.

Pots range from 1 gallon pot to 4.5 . I also have 3 that came up first and are not anything like a magnolia tree. I have read that some seeds will produce freaks, well i have three. They are very different. My daughter calls them Magnolia Palm's. They are very different from the other seedlings, as seen in the picture I sent. The large one is the freak.

I doubt those are magnolia mutants- they wouldn't be that distinct... unless you have exposed them to radiation! Most likely that other plant is some kind of elephant ear tropical plant. My own magnolia seedlings looked nothing like that.

I have a Little Gem Magnolia that is about 3 years old. It produces flowers on the lower half, but the top half has dead branches. Can I cut the dead back and what is a good time?

My magnolia tree is about 3 years old, and has a few flowers on the bottom half. The top has several dead branches. Can I cut back the dead ones? What time of the year would be best?
