Sick Magnolia wilsonii

Noel Fitzpatrick asked 9 years ago

My Magnolia wilsonii is sick, few leaves, dying branches, damaged buds, possibly due to cold weather after early good weather. What should I do to try to rescue this favourite of mine?

This is very likely to be due to harsh winds in recent days. Magnolia foliage is very easily damaged by wind, usually due to branches hitting each other as they move in the wind.

Although it looks bad when it happens, the expansion of leaves will largely hide it in a while.
