I have transplanted my Magnolia Soulangiana and it's suffering after successfully flowering- leaves are very stunted and 10% have died. Should I persevere or act now and do something? I have tried feeding the tree and I can only imagine it's as I have heard, that they don't transplant well? I wouldn't mind as much if I knew it will struggle then bounce back. What do you think?
