Alan, did your leave go the same way for the first couple of years ?

Hi Alan, been feeding it FBB for a few weeks. Haven't watered due to the amount of rain we've had. It is growing in a gravel bed - no other plants nearby.

Hi, I planted my magnolia stellatta in 2012. For the second year running now the leaves form in early spring then turn yellow then brown in mid May before dropping off within a few weeks. No blossoms yet - plant has only grown about 6 inches in 2 years. Any advice please

Hi Lyn,
it does look exacly like yours but if left it spreads amd eventually kills the whole plant.
Your garden looks great by the way.

I planted 40+ Saxifrage plants last year and they've spread to about 16 to 20 inches in diameter producing a fabulous display of flowers this spring. However I've lost 6 or more plants due them turning brown at the centre, spreading and eventually killing the plant. What's causing this ? and what can I do about it ?

Thanks both,  I'll do as you say.

I've just bought a 50 pack of crocus bulbs. Can I plant in gravel garden ?

The gravel is approx 50mm ( 2 inches ) thick on weed fabric. 

Only other alternative is to plant in containers.

Any advice please ?

Magnolia Problem

Posted: 19/06/2013 at 13:12

I planted a magnolia last autumn ( sorry don't know the name but grows to about 3m and has pink & white blossom ).                                                          It has heardly grown and has only developed 6 - 7 leaves, yellow in colour and edges of leaf turning brown. There doesn't seem to be any new buds developing eiither.                                                                                                                          I've planted it in open ground, in an exposed position in neutral soil.

Any suggestions please ?
