The Q&A Archives: Pruning a southern Magnolia

Question: When is the best time to prune a Southern Magnolia? Mine took a beating in a wind storm.

Answer: You can remove any winter damage now. Expect that you will lose some flowers this season but new growth this spring should provide you with flowers next year. Best wishes with your magnolia!
