How Far Apart Should These Magnolias Be Planted?
Plant your Jane magnolia trees about 6 feet apart for a stunning hedge.
Spring or fall are the best times for planting. If you live in an area with mild summers or mild winters you should be fine to plant at these times. Follow the recommendations below to choose the best location for your new Magnolia.
Jane Magnolias thrive in full sun to part shade. Magnolias are very adaptable; soil can be anything from clay to sand to loam, but be sure it is moist and drains well. Be sure the planting site doesn’t hold water. This can drown the roots which can cause root rot and ultimately the death of your tree. When your tree is newly planted, water deeply 2 to 3 times per week. You want to maintain this schedule for about the first 3 months while your plant is establishing. After this time your Magnolia will be quite drought tolerant and only need watering once weekly in summer. Mulching is a good option especially with a newly planted Magnolia. 2-3 inches of mulch will keep your soil moist and cool. It also keeps weeds and grasses at bay. Weeds and grass can steal nutrients and water from your tree. Fertilize with a standard slow release fertilizer in early spring. Magnolias don’t generally require pruning, but prune in midsummer to early fall if needed.
Choosing the proper location and providing appropriate care for your Magnolia goes a long way toward preventing disease and pests. A healthy tree is much less susceptible to infection and infestation. Luckily, Magnolias tend to be naturally disease and pest resistant. Magnolias are sometimes affected by an immobile pest called scale. This pest can be treated with horticultural oil. Be sure to coat the entire tree. You may need to apply more than once for complete control. Fungal diseases like Powdery Mildew can be treated with a copper fungicide.
