Q.How Do I Winterize Magnolia Seedlings?

Zone B3z 1h4 | Anonymous added on July 12, 2022 | Answered

I planted seeds in March after 4 months of stratification and they are 5 or so inches high. Winter will be coming soon and I can’t find any information on how to keep them safe during the cold months. I’m in Canada so our winter can be quite cold. Any help is very much appreciated.
