My magnolia tree has not flowered for the last two years, though it did prior to that. Any suggestions?

Answer: Dear Helen,

I am assuming your magnolia is a deciduous tree and not an evergreen tree. It could be that your magnolia is going straight into leaf without flowering due to environmental conditions or perhaps lacking the necessary nutrients to enable it to produce flowers.

Ensure that your tree is planted in a protected warm sunny spot in your garden. The tree will need regular deep waterings during the hot summer months and a mulch on the ground to protect the roots from drying out. Applying a well balanced fertiliser will enable the tree to take up the nutrients it needs to produce healthy growth and an abundance of flowers in late winter/early spring.

Hopefully your tree will produce some beautiful flowers for you this year.
