Magnolia

Posted: 27/06/2013 at 21:33

A few months ago I brought a bare root Magnolia (Pink Satisfaction) plant,  I planted it in a large terrocotta pot,  Until the last few days there were no signs of growth anywhere on it.  The bark,if that is the correct term, on it is a pinky colour and there now are new shoots  growing just above the base of the plant, 

My question is should I leave the Magnolia as it is or should I cut the stem off above the new growth?  I would appreciate your advice which will encourage this plant to grow as I very nearly gave up on it until the new growth appeared.

Today I found what appears to be self seeded onions in the same area of the veg patch that I planted onions last year.  I didn't havest any of the onions in the autumn as the crop appeared to have failed.  Is it worth leaving these young onion plants to crop this year or should I just dig them up and start again?
