I have been given 3 magnolia plants very small but still alive! as a new gardener I am at a loss as what to do with them so I have planted them in pots. What do I need to do to them to encourage growth ? also what is the best position for them.

    Good idea putting them in pots if you don''t know the variety as many Magnolias will grow into a very large tree!  Do you know the variety, or if they have been grafted?  They need a sunny position, but try and prevent them from getting early morning sun as this can damage the flowers.

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