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?

YOu don't say how old the tree is or how you went about transplanting it, so it's hard to say. The deed is done, though, so now about all you can do is keep it well watered, but make sure it drains well, no standing water, and keep your fingers crossed.

Here are a couple of articles about moving trees and pruning magnolias.
