How To Care

Spring and fall are the best times for planting.  If you live in an area with mild summers or mild winters you can plant at these times as well.  Follow the recommendations below to choose the best location for your new Magnolia.

The Sweetbay Magnolia performs best in full to part sun.  Magnolias are very adaptable; they can tolerate soil from clay to sand to loam, but be sure it is moist and drains well.  When your tree is newly planted, water deeply 2 to 3 times per week.  Water 1-2 times per week for the next couple months.  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 the roots protected.  It also keeps weeds and grasses at bay.  Weeds and grass can steal nutrients and water from your tree.  Fertilize with our balanced, slow release fertilizer in spring.  If pruning is necessary, prune right after flowering has stopped to best avoid trimming off next year's flowers.

The Sweetbay Magnolia is pest, disease, and deer resistant as well as salt and pollution tolerant.
