This has to be one of my favourite spring flowering shrubs, Magnolia 'Leonard Messel' - it's only just a young plant right now so not too many flowers yet, but in a couple of years I think it will be full of blooms 😀 - embarrassed to say it's still in the pot I bought it in last summer, but gonna get cracking with clearing and planting up some the woodland part of the garden this wkd 🌱🌲

I love this too Richard. Might be able to incorporate one in my new borders once the landscaping is done.

Lovely @richard.spicer.7906 - no need to be embarrassed - I managed to kill mine last year by over watering it 🙄

Another newbie. I'm renovating an old border and this should look perfect. But I think the database has it spelt wrong - should be 'Messel' rather than 'Messed' @ukgardentags

Indeed Julie 😀 - I want a nice white Stellata too at some point but probably will be next year now before I can clear the space needed. @juliesgarden

@ukgardentags this one is also spelt wrong - any chance it could be updated to show as "Messel" rather than "Messed"
