Teddy Bear Magnolia is not flowering

4 years ago I planted 'Teddy Bear' Magnolias, but they are still not flowering. What is the reason, and can you please tell me what fertiliser best?

There are various reasons why plants don't flower to their full potential. The main reasons being are:

 

- Inadequate light. Magnolias flower best with at least 3-4 hours direct sunlight.

 

- Nutrient balance: Excess high nitrogen fertiliser. All purpose fertilisers and lawn fertiliser are very high in Nitrogen (N) which promotes leafy growth and prevents flowering growth.

- Lack of nutrients. 

It is best to use a fertiliser that is specially formulated for growing flowers, such as Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food
