Generalities Mountain magnolia
Mountain magnolia isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 9 m in height. The Mountain magnolia develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. The Mountain magnolia develops like a tree. Fertilization Mountain magnolia
Trees tend to find a great part of nutrients in the soil, because their roots spread more than ten metres; in any case it is advisable to feed the soil with amendants, to guarantee a good quantity of mineral salts; every 2-3 years, in the spring or autumn, we suggest adding to the soil at the feet of the trunk, about a bucket of mature organic fertilizer. Exposure Mountain magnoliaSole pieno
The Mountain magnolia plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures. For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Mountain magnolia in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; when putting the very young specimens, with a thin stem, in shelter, we should provide them with a high stake to keep them erect. Watering Mountain magnoliaTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 4-5 weeks . The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings. Treatments Mountain magnolia
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden. Soil Mountain magnolia
Let’s place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
