Hi Venetta,

To help the Port Wine Magnolia flower a fertiliser containing high potassium will help promote flowering. Yates Liquid Potash - it's an easy to use liquid and delivers potassium in a format that is easy for plants to absorb and can be applied to both the soil as well as the foliage, delivering fast results! . Also check and see if there are any possums in your area as they love to eat magnolia flowers. Yates has a wonderful new product available - Yates Possum Repellent Spray helps protect your precious plants by deterring possums from browsing on sprayed plants.
Contains a special combination of ingredients that help reduce possums browsing on plants.
Lasts for up to 7 days or more with regular re-treatment.

The formulation was developed by Professor Lynne Selwood and is protected by a patent granted to the University of Melbourne.
