    Hi guys and girls,
    I have just inherited a very small magnolia tree from my late mother, it's still in the tub she had it in, it did not flower this year. I can only assume it's because the tub is too small. Can somebody please tell me when is the safe time to repot this Magnolia as I really don't want to lose it. I have a nice South facing wall that it could go next too, please can somebody advise. Thank you

    If it's in a tub, you can hoike it out now if you want and replant. Water it very, very well, though. Magnolia's prefer acidic soil.

    btw, Diane, you should have posted this in the "tree" section because a Magnolia's a tree not an alpine. :) :)

      Thank you. I'm sorry I did not realise I was still in that part of the forum. I will make sure I read it more carefully next time. Thanks again.
