Transplanting a non flowering Magnolia ??

Good morning gardeners.

Just a little advice needed from some more experienced gardeners out there.

I have a Magnolia Grandiflora which was bought and planted about 5 years ago in a clay soil with sunlight until It doesn't appear to have grown that much and has never flowered, althought it does look healthy. I was wondering if it would help if i were to transplant it to a full sun position and whether moving it will harm it at all ? I am aware it might be too young to flower in



which case i could leave it alone.

Thank all.

    I garden in clayey soil. Every spring and early autumn I give my magnolias a mulch of ericaceous compost. They are very young ones - 2 have buds but the one like yours is healthy but no flowers, I have read that some take a few years to flower

    This last week I popped a helping of bonemeal  and then mulched them as I said above.

    hope this helps.

    I am not experience enough to know about moving it. Sorry I can't help there.
