Magnolia Selection Pack Of Five Bargain Packs
We have stocked a wide selection of strong young Magnolias in five litre pots for many years, but its not often we offer them with a big 25% discount! These are exactly the same plants from our main Magnolia page, all plants will be labelled.
Our Magnolia Bargain Pack contains five bushy and multi stemmed young trees in a range of colours, one each of the following varieties:
Magnolia Heaven Scent: As the name suggests, this beautiful Magnolia has large tulip or goblet shaped, softly coloured pink flowers which are are highly fragrant. The attractive glossy foliage looks good all season and although this is one of the larger Magnolias that we sell, it still only grows to around 6 metres making it suitable for many smaller gardens.
Magnolia soulangiana Lennei: This stunning small tree produces large and beautifully scented, goblet shaped flowers that are rich deep pink on the outside and paler in the centre. Flowers appear in April and May, and often again in autumn. The glossy foliage emerges bronze-red in spring before turning to green for the summer. A larger variety that is still compact enough for most gardens growing to 6 metres ultimately.
Magnolia Rustica Rubra: This popular Magnolia boasts large and highly fragrant goblet shaped flowers, rosy pink on the outside and lighter inside, appearing from mid April onwards. The glossy green foliage looks good all season. This is an easy and robust little tree that should grow vigorously when established yet still only grows to around 6 metres eventually making it a good choice for gardens of most sizes.
Magnolia stellata Rosea: Masses of delicate star shaped soft pink flowers appear on the bare branches from March onwards carrying a delightful fragrance. The glossy bright green foliage often has attractive bronze tints. This is a great and very compact Magnolia growing to just 2 metres x 2 mtres making it suitable for gardens of all sizes and is a good small tree for growing in containers.
Magnolia stellata Waterlily: This magnificent white flowered Star Magnolia has been selected for its larger than usual, scented pure white flowers that appear in ever increasing numbers during March and April each year. An easy to grow little spring flowering tree that rarely exceeds 2 metres in height making it suitable for containers and all gardens, large or small.
(Should any of the varieties above be out of stock we may substitute with other similar young trees of the same size and value, always in five different varieties)

Although deciduous Magnolia trees are perfectly hardy plants, the young flower buds can be damaged so its worth planting them away from frost pockets and sheltered from strong winds and gales. Most gardens can offer a suitable spot and they also do very well in the shelter provided by a woodland garden. They can be combined effectively with other plants enjoying the same conditions such as Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camellias to provide a long season of flowering during spring and early summer.
Magnolias are quite easy to grow, they prefer a good depth of topsoil that is well drained but does not dry our too much in the summer months. If you have some reasonable garden soil this can be matched exactly to the Magnolias liking with the generous addition of organic matter, well mixed. Adding rootgrow at planting time will ensure they get a good start and a generous mulch after planting should result in strong and healthy growth in the first few years.
Established Magnolia trees seldom need pruning, except to remove damaged, diseased, or congested branches. Occasionally young Magnolia trees may need a little formative pruning to encourage a nice shape. This is best carried out during the warm summer months for deciduous varieties. Evergreen Magnolias should be pruned in spring before they come into growth.
