All magnolias have a wonderful display of flowers and a delicate subtle fragrance. Slow growing and elegant they are generally planted as specimen trees both in towns and the country. Leonard Messel is a small tree which is preferably planted as a specimen but can go in borders, shrubberies and in containers. Their beautiful pale lilac pink blooms appear in mid spring, often both before and after the soft oval green leaves appear.
They like sun and neutral soil but will tolerate most soils provided it is humas rich. Manure or compost should be added to the soil before planting. No pruning and should only be for clearing dead or diseased wood. All trees benefit from a weed, mulch and compost in spring.
Three no no’s. They do not like their roots disturbed once planted so do not plant too close to other trees and shrubs. Be careful of wind as this can damage the flowers. Don’t forget to water and feed your tree if it is in a container.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
