The Q&A Archives: Magnolia

Question: My magnolia tree I planted about 1.5 years ago lost all of its leaves 6 months ago and no new leaves have grown. Can the tree be saved? Should I fertilize more or water less? Any advice. All other magnolias in the neighborhood are full of dark shiny leaves.

Answer: Magnolia trees are evergreen so if yours has dropped all its leaves and not produced new ones, it is probably a goner. Drainage is extremely important to magnolias so make sure the site drains quickly if you replant a new tree. Best wishes with your landscape!
