A slight sidetrack but lots of people have mentioned magnolias- I have a nightmare corner, fairly shady (afternoon sun), fairly dry, on a slope adjacent to a conifer hedge but overlooked by one of our main windows. I’d love to put a magnolia there as a focal point, is there any possibility it would survive, if I got DH to dig it a really good size hole and add lots of compost...?! Or is it just a waste of what could be a lovely tree?

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 17-Apr-19 23:38:55

Dig the hole Dr. I know a few narcissists I could bury there grin

Titsywoo Wed 17-Apr-19 23:44:09

Bunnylady53 Thu 18-Apr-19 00:05:44

My bunnies munch everything! They finished off my narcissi & had a good go at the fuchsia bush. I want to weed all my pots & buy a load of primulas etc but need to invest in some netting so I don’t lose the lot to hungry rabbits! I also want a couple of rose bushes. My favourite flowers 🌷🌹
