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.
