Standard red lucky magnolia plant
Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well and keeping your spirits up. I need some tips if you have any about this magnolia plant I bought off Groupon last year. I only have a small garden and I use it essentially as a kitchen garden, growing vegetables so I only have a few flowers and no trees at all, but I’ve always wanted a magnolia tree so when I saw this one I thought it would be perfect as it’s supposed to grow in a pot. It has only brought out a few leaves and no flowers at all this spring. I bought it bare root last spring and put it in the pot, it is supposed to be suitable for a pot and I don’t think there were any special instructions with it I don’t remember seeing any. I haven’t really done any special maintenance apart from general compost and a little all purpose feed, that’s what I do for all my plants because I try to keep the gardening simple and costs down. So let me know what you think, is it too early for me to expect flowers or is there something wrong with it. Thanks
