The Q&A Archives: Planting Magnolia Trees

Question: When is the right time of year to plant or transplant magnolia trees?

Answer: Debi,

Container grown trees should be planted from fall to spring. However, fall planting is best.

If you are digging up a small tree to transplant it, fall (November) is the best time. That gives the plant the most time to recover and get some roots established before the heat of summer arrives. Be advised though that Magnolia trees absolutely detest being dug and replanted. Your best bet would be with small seedling trees.
