The leaves on my magnolia stellata look scorched although given the summer we've had i don't know how that could be. The scorched leaves are mostly in the centre of the plant.

The plant has been growing in this position for two years although i raised the level of the bed about 3 months ago and repositioned it a bit then. It's never been very happy in this location and it doesn't tend to flower very well. This happened last year too but not as badly.

It's growing on the west side of the garden.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi Misseyb
Your magnolia has all the signs of low temperature damage. When did the damage appear? Try some sort of winter protection, it may help.The position if exposed will also affect your magnolia depending on the surronding planting sunlight etc. Also as far as flowering goes, a couple of good feeds during autumn and winter will give it the boost it needs to produce flowers next spring and hopefully stand up to any cold weather. Good Luck.

Thank you so much for replying. I'll be sure to give it a good feed as suggested and to protect it this winter.

The damage appeared about two weeks ago. Would it still be caused by low temperature if it happened then?

Hi missyb,
it hasnt been cold enough really lately, but sometimes relocating a plant can shock it and leave it vulnerable to all sorts of shock. hope it survives an absolute star of a plant. dont have on myself, neighbour does though, very jealous.
