souther magnolia transplant

Posted by g waterman , Jul 30,2005,14:02       Forum

I had a southern magnolia while living in Danbury, CT (taken North when I moved from GA). I cared for it lovingly for 4 years, building a protective barrier for it each Fall. Each summer it flowered magnificently for 4 years. It had 49 blossoms on it this summer!!! I moved to the South again (Elon, NC) last week and took the tree with me. I trimmed it's branches, lessened its roots, and transplanted it here in NC (in a full sun location) on July 25th. After almost a week, it now has large brown spots on some of the leaves and looks weak. What to do!?!? SOS. As you can tell, I love this tree!
Thank you.
