Magnolia tree

Zone Prince Edward County...Ontario Canada | countrylover added on August 23, 2015 | Answered

We have a beautiful magnolia tree in our backyard. It seems to be very healthy. The blossoms are ripening all of the time but NEVER open at all and fall off the tree unopened. What seems to be the problem?

Usually blossoming issues can be blamed on late spring cold temperatures.
If the tree has always been struggling, I would recommend a soil test.
This will help you pinpoint what may be needed to bring the tree into a healthy state.
