I have a magnolia tree which is now about 9 ft tall. It flowered in its first year but poorly. I moved it to a spot where it seemed to thrive but it has not flowered since that first year. It has large white/pink tulip shaped flowers (or could have.) Any recommendations?
There is a chance that shrubs could be rocked and damaged by soil ringing of the stems before they settle and would be best left until spring, but you could plant herbaceous perennials now as they are low and mostly die back anyway for winter.
