Magnolia x soulangeana is a spring flowering shrub or small tree.These
seeds are from a variety with mainly white flowers, as shown in the
picture, but it grows near several pink and yellow magnolias, so I
would expect some colour variation in the seedlings.
Sow the seeds as soon as they arrive.
First remove the red seed coat.
There are two ways of sowing the seed.2. Sow seeds about 1.3cm (0.5in) deep into pots containing seed
compost. Cover the pots with plastic or
glass to retain moisture and humidity and protect the seed (mice love them!). Keep moist
at all times but do not allow them to become waterlogged.
1.Place the seeds in a polythene bag containing a moist, sterile medium
such as peat or grit, and place in the refrigerator at
about 4°C (39°F). Leave for about 8 weeks, check regularly and plant
as they germinate.
Seeds germinate at temperatures of about 18-24°C (65-75°F).
Germination takes from a few weeks to several months.
off before planting out (after the last expected frosts). Magnolia x soulangeana is said to be happy in USDA zones 4-9 (I am in zone 8) and gets about 35 inches of rain per year here.
I don't use any chemical sprays or artificial fertilisers in my garden.
