Magnolia Yellow Bird
Magnolia x Brooklynensis Yellow Bird Tree had deep yellow flowers with tinges of green on the outside. When closed they look like Tulips. These flowers last two to three weeks and arrive just as the leaves do. Perfect timing, just like your dodgy mate that always finds an excuse to leave when it is his round.
A small height tree, so expect a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years not growing much more than 5m at full maturity.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 125 - 200cm in a 7 - 12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root stock, especially for those with "kiss of death" gardening fingers.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental TreesClimate Change
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy. Planting In The Corner Of A GardenAir and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
General Magnolia Information
Magnolias are generally a low maintenance tree that can tolerate a small amount of drought but not wet for too long so make sure the soil has good drainage. Frequent watering in Summer is better than one large drowning. Magnolias do not require a great deal of pruning but removing dead, diseased and crossed over branches is a good idea. Pick a good spot and do not move them as they may rebel against it by hiding the remote control or not being as vigorous as before. In summary they don't like to be moved/transplanted.
Arguably larger pots mean larger root balls and therefore more vigorous growth.
