My deciduous magnolia has dying branches, a few normal size leaves, some small leave and many missing leaves.

A neighbour cut some branches and they are the ones that are now dying/dead. It didn't flower this year.. It has new branches growing lower down the tree. It must be about 50 year old and I don't want it to die. Please what should I do to help my magnolia?

Hi Joyanne,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

Poor pruning could cause dieback. It is best to finish off by pruning back to the main trunk. Please read more details from the following link:

You may also feed the tree with some 'Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate' as a gentle fertiliser and soil improver. It's certified for use in organic gardens, and contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth. Click here for more info on this product:

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
