I have just transplanted 3 magnolias, (4-5 years old).. What are some of the tips for success of transplant?

Submitted: 10:56AM, 14 May 2017
Answer: Hello! Tips for success of transplant include digging an appropriate sized hole for the plant – it should be at least 2 1/2 times the size of the rootball; incorporating fertiliser such as Yates Dynamic Lifter in the soil backfill; positioning the plant so that it is at the same level as the soil surface and watering well.

If your magnolias are evergreen,we suggest spraying the foliage with Yates Droughtshield, an anti- transpirant. This polymer based spray which lasts 60 days, protects the leaves from losing water to better survive the transplant process.

Hope you find these tips helpful.
