Hello All (that being you ;-D )... I have a Magnolia Royal Star that's about 18 years old and magnificent. The problem is, I grabbed about 50 seeds off the tree in the fall and successfully germinated them (soaked the orange pods in water with a bit of dish soap overnight...used a paper towel to remove the pods and placed them in the fridge in peat moss from fall to February) and put them all in one large pot. They're still growing...and they're about 2 inches tall now. All very happy campers. I need advice on WHEN to transplant into pots or, if I should put them outside to grow and face the elements. If I put them in their own pots at this time, WHEN will I be able to put them in the ground? I'm about an hour north of Toronto...Ontario. Another issue....I have the land and a greenhouse (small) .... but the soil is mosly clay and they require acidic soil. I can amend the soil with peat moss and triple mix (like I did with the original tree) and I keep bark (left over from firewood) over the base of the tree. Remember this folks....especially if you love your plants....DON'T try and take over mother nature.
