Customer Reviews & Photos
The entire process was excellent on the FGT side, but the Postal office lead something to be desired. My plants were delayed and after probably spending 2 days in 90deg heat with the USPS they were pretty haggered. I contacted customer service about one of the plants that looked extremely dead, but she told me to give it a good drink and see what happens. A week later this sucker has new leaves poking out all over the place and is on the way to a healthy recovery. The other perked right up and is doing great. Looking forward to training both vines along my balcony railing!
After planting them in my containers, I experienced unexpected below temperatures, and two nights of frost (in May). Because I didn't cover them, the vines began to die (I purchased two). I thought that they weren't going to survive but after removing the dead part of the vine , and the dead leaves, they starting to show signs of life again. The leaves that remained are perking up and it just looks better. I'm so excited to see them growing in my new food garden.
It’s a little stubborn getting started growing. Have tried one in full sun and one in partial sun. The plant (6 inch)planted in the shade is actually doing better.
I purchased 2 of these vines Hoping to get lots of fruit and be able to share with neighbors and friends. I have had a minor issue with them. first thing is they came in a box with a few other plants and were at the bottom of the box and everything else was on top so the few leaves they had were smooshed pretty bad and very wimpy. I had bad thoughts that it wasn't going to make it so I placed it on the back porch where it would get some sun bit not too much and kept it watered to see what would happen. I didn't want to plant it directly if it was going to die. well after about a week and finally a sunny day I decided to go ahead and plant them in the ground. well it has been 3 weeks since I planted them and so far they are doing ok. they look like they are about to exploded with new starts all up and down the vine., I can't wait to get my first harvest..
Planting & Care
Planting and Caring Guide
Planting Instructions: Plant your Magnolia Vine in a hole that is deep enough to cover the root ball. This will usually only be a few inches. If you are planting multiple vines, space them at least 4 inches apart. Make sure to plant your vine near a wall, fence or trellis so it can grow upwards. Add a layer of pine needles and oak leaks around the base of the plant to maintain the ph balance of the soil. Be sure to plant in well drained soil. To test, pour a puddle of water on the soil. If the puddle remains after a couple hours, amend the soil with peat moss and try again.
Watering: Your Magnolia Vine is not drought resistant, so be sure to keep the soil moist. If you have any period of drought, test the soil for moisture, and water as necessary.
Training: If you’d like to train your Magnolia Vine to grow in a specific direction, simply tie the vines with garden wire and bend to shape. Remove the wire once the vine has grown.
