About 4 years ago, I ordered and planted Magnolia Jane. I live in zone 6, Buffalo NY. The plant arrived in amazing condition, so much better than anything offered at local nurseries for about 4 x the price. Jane bloomed that first year. But she's really outdoing herself this year. Blooms everywhere! I will definitely reommend purchasing from Fast Growing trees
I bought 3 young trees and planted them as instructed. They went into a couple of days of stress, but came right back. The dormant period went quickly and it has new buds sprouting out in a lime green healthy looking color
I really recommend this beautiful flower tree. If you want to purchase it, you should get the tallest tree because it looks more healthier. The shipping is quick and safe. My trees arrived perfectly and healthy. I love fast and growing tree website. Will buy more tree from this web
When I received the tree it was well packed and a good size!. As the summer went on, I thought the tree was dying because all of the leaves were turning brown and falling off. It ended up that I think it was in shock because after all the leaves fell off, slowly new leaves began to grow. I even got a flower!!! Now after about 4 months, the tree looks happy and healthy!!! I would definitely buy from Fast growing trees again!!!! (I live in NJ)
I was injured just before these magnolias arrived and, although I did my best to water them, it seemed one would not survive the inordinately delayed planting.
I planted that severely wilted and anemic tree, and two days after planting - aided by Miracle Grow and peat moss - it is now vibrant. The second thrived in its pot, patiently awaiting its permanent home, and is likewise promising a healthy future.
I could hardly recommend such harsh treatment, but if my trees could endure such, I cannot help but wonder how well they would perform under ideal conditions.
We received our three Jane Magnolia trees in pretty good shape. However, by mid summer they were struggling with a fungus of some sort. My neighbors six year old tree finally died this year and a landscaper friend indicated about 70% of her customers lost magnolia trees this year. I've been spraying them with an anti-fungi spray and have new growth at the bottom. Just not sure how it will play out. Stay tuned.
Bought 2 planta. They arrived in good condition. Planted right sway without a problem. Leaves burned during a prolonged heat spell. Wrote to Pam for advice about fertilizer without a response. Overall rating 3.5.
I planted two Jane Magnolias as focus specimens in a newly created rock garden in April 2015. I was concerned that after a month, one had no buds. But after 6 weeks, buds appeared and the both trees looked healthy and grew about 6" over the summer. The real test will be what happens to the plants next year after the harsh mountain winter and heavy winds we get here on the mountain.
Tree arrived in great condition and was planted right away. Did not show signs of stress and seems to be going strong. Leaves are starting to spread and seem to be doing good. Looking forward to growth and blooms. This company knows how to package trees and sends good stuff. I will be using them more in the future.
So far just a few leaves has grown. Some of what could have been branches died. Has not grown in height as yet. I will cover it for winter. So hope it will survive the winter.I hope to rate it # 1 next summer!!!!!!!!!
The tree arrived very quickly and in great shape. I thought the price was great value. There was plenty of guidance for planting in the emails I'd received. The tree seems to be doing well so far. But, it's early days yet (I've been asked to write a review just about 3 weeks after planting). I don't expect any problems, but I have chosen "medium' ratings above just because it is too soon to say either way with respect to "growth rate" and "hardiness"
The tree I purchased was rather small. I planted it in late Fall and didn't think it would make it since the temperatures dropped so rapidly into Winter. I was so pleased to see this little tree put out buds and leaves at the end of Winter. It actually produced a couple of flowers! It has healthy green leaves but seems to be a slow grower. I just hope it can tolerate the amount of sunshine here in the high desert (Zone 7).
I have always loved the Jane magnolia, ever since my family gardening gene activated (before I was 30, I didn't much care about gardening). When I moved to the West Coast at age 59, I wasn't sure how many of my favorite Mid-Altlantic blooming trees I'd be able to grow out here.. So very pleased to see that I can have all my favorites. Very happy to have found Fast Growing Trees had all my favorites, and only the Kwanza Cherry I wanted cannot be shipped to WA. Now, I can find some of these at local garden centers, but I wasn't finding the varieties I wanted. The plant arrived slightly worse for the wear on the long trip here, but had blooms that a few actually survived, leaves perked up quickly after, and it seems to be enjoying the spot I chose for it. Can't say it's gotten much taller, in a month's time, but she's certainly filled out with leaves, and seems quite happy. Thank you FGT! Next season I hope I have the opportunity to order the Forest Pansy Redbud before it's gone!
The trees arrived fast and in beautiful condition. Great price too. I planted them 2 weeks ago and they are doing great. I did order the fertilizer with the tree. It's to early to tell how fast it will grow but I would definitely recommend.
My tree arrived in great condition and settled in nicely after following the detailed planting instructions.There was barely any leaf loss and it seems to be accepting its new home. I am looking forward to the spring blooming.
The shipping is fast and well packed. However, the tree is very small and didn't worth the money at all. It was basically two branches, with several leaves burnt and bite. The main stem is small than a chopstick. It does do well and has no issues so far. It's just you don't know when it will grow like a "tree". Very disappointed.
Plant your Jane Magnolia Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Jane Magnolia Trees prefer full morning sun and afternoon shade. Plant your Jane Magnolia Trees about 5 feet apart for a privacy screen.
Jane Magnolia Trees prefer slightly acidic soil, but will adapt to your natural soil even if its sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's draining. Keep your soil moist but not over saturated. Water your Jane Magnolia once a week during the summer. Jane Magnolia Trees will only require extra water during times of drought and extreme heat.
Lightly fertilize your Jane Magnolia in the early Spring and early Fall with a slow release acidic fertilizer. Beautiful Pink to purple blooms that are white on the inside will emerge on your Jane Magnolia every Spring.
I purchased a magnolia in Chama last year and it came through the winter with flying colors and is doing quite well. Went back to the same store the other day and was told that magnolias don't grow here. Called a couple of nurseries in Santa Fe - "they don't grow here". Same from a very good nursery in Pagosa Springs, CO. I am at approximately 8,000 ft. in the mountains. Googled and your site was the first.
This is a beautiful tree. I grew up with one in my childhood home front yard and always wanted another one in my yard. I look forward to taking pictures of this tree with my children and igniting some wonderful memories.
I just moved from the East Coast to Washington State. My property here is devoid of vegetation, save for one lonely and neglected crab apple tree. Fast Growing Trees has all my favorites, and I have ordered several flowering trees - can't wait to plant them and give this place some fresh character!
My wife and I lived in a rented home that had a Jane Magnolia in the front yard. We thought the tree was beautiful and made the yard look very nice. When we purchased our own home we decided this was a tree we wanted in our front yard.
Best Answer:The Jane Magnolia is a small tree, and its roots will be about the size of the drip line (width of the branches). If you plant it 5-6 feet or further from your house, the roots should not be a problem.
Best Answer:I trim the Jane Magnolia right before winter starts to shape it and take off the growth that is low to the ground. I do not trim any buds. I also feed it with a flowering bush fertilizer in June, October and March. ( You might want to consider a triangle hinged wood tent over it for the harsh winter or some burlap.
Best Answer:The best time to plant the Jane Magnolia is in the early Spring or early Fall. If your temperatures aren't scorching hot in the 90's or above then it will be fine to go ahead and plant now.
Best Answer:Hi. I bought a 6' tree 2 years ago. I planted it in full sun, fertilized it with one that is made for flowering bushes / trees, water it when there are dry spells, and it has grown about 1 foot each year. It is 6 feet from my driveway. It bloomed the first year, and this the second year there were twice as many blooms in South Eastern Massachusetts. No roots are visible near the surface on my tree, but again it is now 8' tall and only established for 2 years. I personally would not put this tree closer than 5' from a driveway to avoid that problem and where I am the problem of snow removal and cars in the driveway. Good Luck
I do not know. I didn't like my trees they didn't grow very well for me.So I gave them away. The only reason I got these trees is because I bought two rose trees and they both died. So they kinda gave me a discount not much because I still had to pay alot for them. They wouldn't even give my money back on the trees I bought. I gave them proof and sent pictures. not even a year went buy and they didn't give me a refund. Sorry but I would not buy anything from this company. They are a big rip off. For the Jane Magnolia Tree don't waste your money.
yes, they are. However, after 1 yr my tree died. I suspect the soil was one of the main reasons. Since then, we got 2 more and they are doing well. Leave sufficient space between them if you get multiple.
Best Answer:If you're looking for an indoor potted plant, the Columnar Apple Tree would be great. A Meyer Lemon Tree would fill the home with a lovely aroma. A knockout Rose Tree would provide lovely blooms. It you're looking for something outdoors, the Cleveland Pear Tree would provide beautiful blooms, so would the Jane Magnolia.
Best Answer:When the Jane Magnolia begins to come out of its dormant stage, it has a fur like budding period as things begin to warm up. The leaves come in about 3 weeks later and they are a light green color with a serrated edge to them.
My Jane Magnolias are not trees, they are more shrub like with 3 to 4 main stems coming up from the root ball.
Best Answer:I live in Yarmouth, Ma. out on Cape Cod. Initially I gave it water every other day until the roots were established. I usually rely on the regular rainfall to fulfill the watering except for during the July 1st till August 15th period here which can be 80 degrees, full sun and often not a lot of rain. During this period of very hot sunny weather with no rain, I will give it a quart of water a week depending on how hot / sunny if there is no rain. My tree is now 2 years old and it looks amazing ! I do feed it 2x a year as well. Good luck.
To get the tree established I made sure to keep it watered after planing; however since I did so in the fall, it was not hard to keep the new planting moist without overly saturated. Once it put on it's first growth, I have not done any special watering and regular rainfall has been sufficient.
Best Answer:If it is a minor infestation, you can get by with just removing affected leaves. However, you will have to be on the lookout for reinfestation. There are many pesicides that work for scale. Generally liquid spray is more effeictive becuase you have to get it on the bottom of the leaves. If you are like me and prefer to avoid chemical pesiticdies, you can use Neem Oil. You can also use diatomaceous earth. This is a talcum-like powder. Put it in a bottle like you put mustard or ketchup in (with the pointy top and that you can squeeze) and "dust" the tree with the diatomaceous earth. This is completely harmless to humans and animals. The kind I buy is food grade. It is made of microscopic fossilized aquatic organisms and works by damaging the exoskeleton of bugs of all kinds, causing them to die quickly.
Insecticidal spray of acephate (Orthene), insecticidal soap, or summer-oil spray can help control crawlers. Magnolia scale can be controlled in the early stages, nymph stage. Small nymphs called crawlers begin to emerge in August, which is the mobile life stage.
Best Answer:Do the scratch test. Take a coin, finger nail etc. scrape teh bark, if its green underneath then its alive, if its brown its dead. Soil quality could be a problem. It likes rich, acidic, well-drained soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5, amended with organic material. High nitrogen fertilizer could also cause a tree not to bloom.
Best Answer:Hi, I planted a Jane Magnolia in the fall in Washington, DC. In reference to planting it in the fall in the Northeast, I'd check your planting zone to make it will survive, then mulch the tree to protect it. I planted one Jane Magnolia about 10 years ago in the fall And another last year both are doing well. Growing up in Boston U remember them blooming in the spring along Commonwealth Ave., so they survive Northeast winters! Good luck.
what do you do for black spots on end of leaves of the jane magnolia it was purchased this ?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
Best Answer:I haven't had any black spots on the leaves of my magnolia tree . It bloomed just beautiful this spring. If you find a answer to the problem, just in case it happens to mine I would like to know. Sorry I couldn't be of any help to you.
Have had our magnolia now beginning it's 3rd year ... (in WI)-our winter seemed to never end, and I fear it may have gotten frostbite 2-3 times that affected the middle section ... no leaves in the middle of the main trunk --- but some above that area, and of course the bottom third has branches/leaves just fine--- I kept checking what the buds were doing, and some from the middle actually fell off, no leaf developed...the rest of it now doesn't have flowers either, but leaves look healthy. Our first year it did not bloom at all, the 2nd yea--- it blossomed 3 times !!! Now wondering if I should trim off the top/middle portions to give it another chance to form/grow into another like-new shape ?? Any suggestions??
A shopper on Jun 20, 2014
Best Answer:Take a coin or your fingernail and gently scratch some of the surface area of the bark on the branches without leaves on your tree. If there is a light color underneath like green or white the branches will recover. If the color underneath is dark than those branches need to be pruned back. Make the cuts at 45 degree angles facing upwards and new growth will fill in.
How wind resistant is this? We are in greatfalls montana about 40 miles north of the rocky mountan front. ? I want to get some cool trees for my mom. Will these once established be able to grow in Gumbo clay?
Best Answer:I bought this last year in Michigan and toss past winter we had wind chills down to 50 below and I couldn't believe this tree bloomed beautifully. ..I lost 3 rose trees and our empire plants took forever to leaf but this tree doesn't even seem to have any negative impact from the extreme low winter.
Our tree was a full green leaf, healthy tree & this year it has lost leaves & some branches are bare,still blossoming beautiful white f lowers but very bare looking. what can we do to get it full & healthy looking again?
Best Answer:There could be a number of reasons, too much or not enough water. They like their soil to be moist but not saturated. They are acid loving plants that like their soil to be 5.0 - 6.5 pH, not too high in nitrogen. You can fertilize in the spring and late summer with Milorganite or Holly Tone. A late frost could also be a culprit. If there were spots on the leafs it could be a fungus.
Best Answer:We got this magnolia just this spring but it is growing well and did have a number of flowers. Even though we live in Minnesota we have had very good luck with a butterfly (yellow gold) magnolia and a deep pink one. The yellow one is large and has hundreds of flowers every spring. That one is about 10 years old and the deep pink one is somewhat younger. This Jane is growing well and is starting to get lower branches and starting to grow tall.and branch out nicely. We expect a truly beautiful tree in a couple years. We feed it some acid fertilizer. The flowers are not star shaped and are tighter at first and then open up more and are a nice color. Your zone is much warmer so your supplier can tell you when to plant but you can probably plant year round.
