I have been having problems with cats - DISGUSTING !!!!  I took the advice of orange pe.el and that seems to working.  I cut it into shreds so it doesn't look unsightly in the border

No blossom or magnolia flowers

Thanks.  I have been feeding it as I thought that was the best thing to promote flowering and it obviously hasn't worked.  Will stop now in the hope of flowering next year.  It originally flowered on our Wedding Anniversary so here's hoping for next year !!

My magnolia flowered beautifully in a pot for its first couple of years.  Last year I potted it up in to a huge barrel and it hasn't flowered since !!!  It looks so healthy but no flowers.  What have I done wrong ?

Thank you.  I am in my late sixties but still enjoy getting stuck in to the garden with a digging fork !!  It is rewarding if the ground is damp and you can pull at the roots bu it just keeps coming back !!  Will try painting the leaves when I have removed the bulk of it.  Any more ideas gratefully received.
