I've just moved into a new house with a larger garden and inherited a superb pink magnolia but who's leaves and buds are stricken with a brown mould which destroys the huge petals soon after opening.Any advice on treatment please? Much appreciated!
I also have this but I assumed it was because we had severe frost and snow when the flowers were just budding.
I also have a purple magnolia that is about 20 years old and flowered really well every year but now looks as though it is dead as it has no buds and no leaves. A few well established trees in my neighbours garden have also died.
If anyone has any thoughts it would be appreciated.
Thanks for your thoughts Figrat. Do you think I should get a specialist in to diagnose and try to stop the spread?
