Re: Port Wine Magnolias

Nice post and I reckon the new hedgeline will look great in a year or so.

I have a more established line of Magnolias along my front (north side) fence on Sydney's Northern Beaches (not right on the coast).

Unfortunately, I hadn't picked up the advice about regular tip pruning to get bushiness. The  result is that we now have 2.5m high and a bit sparse around the lower branches.

Is there any way to encourage growth lower down? Or should I just get an underplanting in there of something new?

Re: Port Wine Magnolias

Welcome to the community @boatbloke and many thanks for joining in the discussion.

 

Let me tag @Adam_W for you so he is alerted to your question about how to encourage more lower growth for your Magnolia hedge. I'm sure he'd be happy to help when he gets a chance. 

 

Please feel free to post anytime you need a hand with something around the house or garden. We look forward to reading more about your projects and plans. 

 

Thanks again,

 

Jason
