Plant the Magnolia 'Jane' in the spring or early fall in a location where it can grow to its full maturity without movement, as the shrub doesn't do well with transplanting. Pick a location that allows the roots to spread and branch freely, away from building foundations, walls, and decks
To plant Magnolia 'Jane,' dig a hole as deep as the root ball and three times as wide. Mix the removed soil with compost or peat moss to enrich the soil and loosen existing dirt. After putting the plant in the soil, water it well and then add a 2-inch layer of much.
Plant the Magnolia 'Jane' in a location that has full sun or part shade. Avoid placing it in an area with warm southern exposure, which could encourage the buds opening too early in the spring months. If a magnolia gets too much hot sun, the blooms could suffer from sunscald.
Magnolia 'Jane' grows best in organically rich, medium-moisture soil that's neutral to slightly acidic. Add a layer of root-zone mulch to help the soil retain its moisture, but keep it 4 inches away from the trunk of the plant. Magnolias adapt fairly easily to a variety of soils, including clay, loam, or sand, but it doesn't do well in wet or poorly drained soils.
Temperature and Humidity
This shrub can tolerate temperatures as low as -30 or -20 degrees Fahrenheit. It also needs proper air circulation to avoid powdery mildew, its biggest threat.
Once the Magnolia 'Jane' is established, fertilize it in the spring every two to three years. To fertilize, you can spread compost around your bush in spring and water it in. Then, in early fall, use a fertilizer geared to acid-loving plants, such as Holly Tone.
This deciduous shrub needs to be watered weekly for the first growing season. When it's hot, water every few days in an effort to soak the ground up to 8 inches. Check the first 2 to 4 inches of soil to see if it's dry; if it is, it's time to water. If the magnolia is well-established, it's moderately tolerant to drought.
