Have a wilting Magnolia droipping leaves and some are going brown

I was told it's due to too much water I put root rot solution around it to try and protect from that what else can I do? We have a huge amount of rain here and maybe it got watered in between ? I am not sure ,any ideas how to save it?

Answer: Hi Robert,
Thank you for contacting Yates.

Sounds like root rot, try Yates Anti Rot, it is a systemic fungicide which is absorbed by the foliage and travels down to the roots, can be used on various plants to control phytophthora root rot, crown rot and collar rot. You can find more information at

Also, it’s important to improve soil structure by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
