Hi again, nitrogen is for leaf and stem growth,phosphorous for roots,shoots,and buds and potash for flowers and fruiting and general hardiness,perhaps this might help.

MAGNOLIA PROBLEM

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.
