I'd winter sow them, but that's just me. Any time I don't know how to germinate a seed, or I don't feel confident with it, I winter sow at least a few. I let Mother Nature do it for me.

I'd google " germinate magnolia seeds"

Maybe try now, while the seeds are fresh. They have to be moist for cold strat- so maybe in some damp vermiculite, and put in a plastic bag in the fridge for a couple of months. Then sow them. I'd try some outside, some inside.

Can Magnolias be started form cuttings? I had to cut a few small branches off and did not save them. Confused

I imagine so. Lots of people start trees and shrubs from cuttings. I've never tried it though.

This is my white Magnolia, it has been flowering constantly this summer maybe because of so much heat, I always get a LOT of seed pods in the fall if I get them again this year I would be glad to send you some.
