Every time I move house I don't like the water. I think you get used to one and the rest aren't right.

Hey, you did it.

Magnolia Tree - Dead or dying, please help?

Posted: 20/07/2014 at 16:50

The slugs and woodlice will have moved in rather than causing it. 

It'scan be  hard to pinpoint a cause of trunk damage, rabbits, strimmers, edge of a mower, anything like that lets the rot in. I doubt if the grasses caused it though they may have hastened the rot. Competition would slow down growth maybe but trees germinate and grow in grass land without rotting.

It's over for that magnolia though sorry

Phlomis, russelliana and tuberosa, are pretty stable

Echinops ritro,  hemerocallis, Solidago caesia but not the tall ones, euphorbias, some of the persicarias, there's a red called 'Inverleith' that stays up and a paler pink one I don't know the name of, crocosmias
