Magnolias

Zone South West uk. | Anonymous added on February 5, 2018 | Answered

I have three Magnolias. Two in very large tubs and one in the soil. Between four and seven feet high with very healthy looking foliage. They are all five years old at least and none have ever flowered. Please can you tell me if I am being impatient or doing something wrong?
