Young Magnolia Stellata leaves turning black..,

Hi all,

I have a problem! I’m not sure why but my magnolia Stellata’s that I have in pots aren’t looking great.

The leaves are turning black. The black seems to be creeping along the mid-rib of the leaves then spreading.

I’m new to gardening, and learning, do you experienced guys have any idea what this could be please?? Am I over watering? Or is it a disease? Help?!!! 

Thank you in advance everyone!

    Not a plant I grow but hopefully someone here will have some suggestions ... can you tell us a bit more about them?  How old are they? What are they growing in? What’s the feeding/watering regime? 
    That sort of thing ...
