When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...
Even when it’s dark and wet, this shines 💚🤍🖤 #magnolia-stellata
It’s a fabulous plant isn’t it. I have very stony, limey soil so am really happy it likes being in a pot @johnnyuk
Thanks, good to know, though as long as it’s happy in its pot it can stay there 🤞 @johnnyuk
They really are great
It has never had so many flowers. There were some benefits to the rain we had last summer… #magnolia-stellata
They do seem to have performed well this year
I’m so pleased Joan. This is in a pot and for the first couple of years it had hardly any flowers, then I was reminded that “it never rains in pots”, so watered it more often 😊 @joannie.a
I’ve had one of these for at least five years. 3 flowers on it this year !
Oh sorry Angie. I read somewhere (possibly here 😊) that they won’t flower well if they’ve been dry the previous summer. Perhaps that’s the problem? 🤔 @ada31514
Ah that could well be the issue.
Fingers crossed for next spring then 🤞 @ada31514
I’m going to have flowers! Lots of flowers 💚 #magnolia-stellata
Yaaaay indeed Julie! It’s the first time since I got it that it has had more than one flower 🙄😂 @juliesgarden
Patience is a virtue as they say Jacqueline 👍🏻😂😂
This was taken a week ago but I need to record it for posterity. This one flower represents an infinite increase on last year 😉😍 #magnolia-stellata
Oh no what a shame Jacqueline, makes it more beautiful somehow !!
I was pleased just to get the one tbh Julie as I thought it wasn’t going to flower at all. It’s in a pot and I think maybe I didn’t water it enough last year 🤔 @juliesgarden
Ah yes they are quite thirsty plants 🪴
Probably do better in the garden, I’ve got a pink one on my front rockery which is flowering really well 🤔
17 Apr 2019 • I’ve watched all of the magnolia blooming on here and in gardens and finally I can join the party 🎉 #magnolia-stellata
Congratulations Jacqueline. I have left the party this year as my stellata died last year after over 40 years 😭
What a shame Nicola. Was it just old age? 🤔 @jendren
Unfortunately it was a combination of putting in a raised bed which meant cutting some of its roots and the hot weather Jacqueline. Despite watering it it turned up its toes. One of those things
I had a gorgeous Rhodendren Praecox that did that. No idea why. As you say, one of those things 🤷♀️ @jendren
28 Apr 2018 • I seem to have a Magnolia Stellata 😬 #secondtimelucky
Such a pure white Jacqueline @awomanonabike Beautiful 😍😘
It really is that white too Suzie -no filter 😊 @jadojado29
Thank you Melanies 😉 @mellybobs @greenfinger14
You can see why I couldn’t resist Laura. We had one many years ago but sadly it died, I think largely through neglect 😟 @columbiariver
Thank you Gaurav. It is very photogenic @gauravsh6
Yup! 😉😊😊 @Denise16
