Gorgeous Scents

  • There are two forms of the Fairy Magnolia's the Blush and the Cream
  • Blush is a soft pink flower with a gentle fragrance and the plant is quite literally smothered in flowers right through the late winter and spring. Every leaf axis produces a flower bud and the plant grows into a shrub 1.5 to 2 metre tall with a similar width. This means there's thousands of flowers with each flush making a spectacular display
  • Cream has delicate looking bigger blooms than blush and they are gently fragrant. It produces thousands of flowers and makes a stunning feature shrub In any garden
  • If you are looking for a informal hedging plant for a bright sunny position in a garden the magnolia fairy collection is the best
  • As a screening plant they are hard to beat and as a formal hedge they are even better as they respond really well to trimming regularly
  • The bushier they are the more flowers you get, meaning you quite literally lose your plant in flowers for several months a year
  • The trick with the Fairy Magnolia's is to prune them when you first get them and plant in a rich organic soil. They prefer a slightly acid soil and regular feeding with a controlled release plant food every four months
