Magnolia died off

Posted: 24/06/2014 at 11:54

I have a small magnolia tree which I moved last autumn to front garden. It was looking fine in spring with flower buds ready to open and we went away for a few days. On our return the blooms had either fallen off or died. I had given the tree a feed of maglnolia nutrients earlier in year. I did at first think it was snails as there were several crawling up the trunk !!. BUT surely this would not have killed off tree which is what it looks like now. all leaf buds have fallen off or dried up and its really just a large twig now. Does anyone know what it might be and what can be done to remedy it. Many thanks

No blossom on plum tree

This year I have another problem with a small magnolia. I moved it last year in autumn to front garden and all was looking good with flower buds about to open in spring. We were away for a few days and on return the flowers

had either fallen off or dried up. I have left it to see if leaves appear but nothing and it now really looks dead. I have given it a feed of magnia nutrients a few weeks back. So I wait some advice please. many thanks. Pat

Thankyou all for sending these helpful messages. I did actually put the query last year 2013 in May. This year the plum tree had blossom and has fruit on it. I did give it a feed last year so this obviously helped. Thanks again.

Thanks everyone for the advice re my dead or dying ceanothus. I do have another query though. Further up on same side of garden I have a minarette victoria plum tree. It is civered in healthy looking green leaves but no blossom has appeared. What should I do to encourage it to produce blossom for next season. This tree did not produce much fruit last year after I moved it. In its original position the branches were laden with fruit.

    I do have two minarette Apple tree which are covered in blossom at the moment. I know someone out there will help me. Thanks in advance.

Ceanothus dead

OK I will leave italian skies to possibly recover. BUT I still might buy another type to plant elsewhere. I quite like the foliage on "Lemon and Lime." Has anyone had experience of this shrub. Many thanks all

Ceanothus dead

I have a ceanothus "Italian skies" which appears to have died. It has been established a few years and flowered well last year. However this year a lot of it appears to be dead with no foliage buds. There are some small buds but some of them are dying off. Was this due to the cold weather or has it been overshadowed by my forsythia bush which appears to have spread over the ceanothus. Or is there some other reason.

Thankyou wintersong. I did wonder whether to reduce the foliage myself to make it easier. Ok will get on and do this.
