Planting a Magnolia Tree
It’s easy to grow the magnolia. Once you’ve determined what type of magnolia will be the most effective for your yard, it’s time to begin digging. Select a site which is in full sun or partially sun in areas with higher temperatures. Magnolias don’t like to be in a crowded area and cannot be moved until they have established their roots. Don’t plant or plant any other plants underneath them, such as grass. The leaves can fall on everything that’s not needed and will cover everything below them. If the leaves are allowed to decompose, they’ll remain vital to the magnolia. It is possible to select a location with dense moist, good-drained soil, which is fertile neutral or acidic, or amend the soil to improve it. Keep in mind that deciduous magnolias should be most effective when planted in the early spring, when they are in dormancy.
After you’ve decided on the best location to plant make into a hole at minimum 1.5x the dimension of your plant’s root ball or bound. Dig a little deeper. The soil layer that covers the top of the tree should be removed. The root should be placed at the same level as the soil surrounding the hole. The hole for planting should be filled to the halfway mark with soil. Be sure your tree’s straight. The half-full hole must have water in it. It should drain before you fill it with soil. Be sure the root at the top isn’t completely covered. Cover it with several millimeters of mulch.
