MAGNOLIA PROBLEM

Posted: 28/05/2014 at 10:40

Hi Steve, i went  to RHS Stellata,on the net perhaps if you try it and check that your set up is correct for your Magy it might help,we have about 7 mags the stellatta about 4 years old (they are slow growers at first )is just superb  this year, we fed on FBB and plenty of water ,it also has no other trees / shrubs, near by competing for its water  Good luck

Judy Hi ,i found this at the RHS site as i dont know anything about your plant but im wondering if a spot of Potash might help with the flowering ,iv just given a Peace Lilly a small feed on it , they are a bit of a (i do what I want plant ) but it now has 7 good flowers ,so perhaps it might help, wont do any harm i dont think and potash is cheap

Barmyowl high, you can buy a bluing agent from any G/C,should do the trick as long as the plant was a true blue to begin with. its the amount of aluminium in the soil that makes the blue plants colour ranges.

Hi Lyn6, i agree with Blairs, just unenforceable, go for a fence ,we  are on a Bridal path along the front and with an unadopted road on the other side ,our solicitor said just make sure what ever you do you dont upset anyone, we now have a fence and Pyracantha looks just right. just do it.
