#ProPlantTips for Plant Care
Keep your Magnolia happy! Plant it in a full sun location in well drained soil and give it additional moisture as needed each week throughout the growing season.
Magnolias love a nice layer of arborist chips or shredded mulch over the roots. Always be careful not to apply the mulch up against the trunks of any plant. Keep the mulch away from the trunks by six inches or so but lay a nice layer of 3-4 inches over the root system. Remember, plants that are healthy and vigorous are far less susceptible to problems that plants that are stressed.
Jane is a great choice. Order yours today!
