Magnolia Leaves Curling & Going Brown

I have a magnolia tree which I planted about 2 years ago. Over the last few days all the new leaves have started curling and going brown & the older leaves have brown spots forming, any ideas?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thanks BobTheGardener I’m just down the road from you in Derbyshire, I was starting to think it was something I’d done 👍🏻

    Late frosts are always a problem for magnolias but this year it came after the flowers had pretty much finished.  In other years, I've woken up to see what was a glorious display of magnolia flowers the previous day now reduced to a carpet of petals beneath the trees.  It's just something we have to accept when growing them in the UK.  Other than the late frost issue they are trouble-free trees though. :)

    Its the first time I’ve had one so I wasn’t sure, hope that the leaves grow back as it’s was coming on beautifully
