A beautiful blanket of blooms

Also known as Yellow Lily Tree, 'Yellow Bird' will grace your garden with its bright yellow, goblet-shaped blooms, which will brighten up your landscape even on the dullest of days! The handsome green foliage will emerge shortly after these flowers first appear, and come autumn, will mature to a yellow-brown shade. As such, you will be receiving a plant that will offer an ever-evolving display throughout the seasons.

Packaging: We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system. All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Magnolia trees are easy to grow. Their growth and output will likely be excellent providing you follow our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common query topics:. Position: Magnolia trees benefit from being planted in full sun. Planting them in a sheltered spot will also help them put more resources into their flowering display. Soil: Well-drained or moist but well-drained soil will help your magnolia to thrive. Don't plant them in soil that easily becomes waterlogged as this can lead to problems. Also try not to compress the soil when planting, give them room to breathe! Watering: With containerised trees, it is important to drench their root ball before planting. Pruning: For containerised trees, you should free any spiralized roots growing around their rootball's circumference. Planting: With containerised trees, the pot should sit no lower than an inch below the ground. Potted trees planting requirements, detailed below: You should dig a hole that is twice the radius of their rootball. Stake your trees no more than 2 - 3 inches from the stem, and make sure that they are pointing away from the prevailing wind. Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, finishing with fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil. Once you are happy with your efforts, give your tree a generous watering. Add mulch on top (this can be bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones), and ensure that these do not touch the stem of the tree. Tie the stake to your tree (and leave space for growth), and place a rabbit guard around your tree to protect it from harmful pests. Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring. In autumn, remove fallen leaves to prevent the risk of disease. You should also make sure that the ties are not rubbing your tree.
