  • Q:

    Will I be able to keep this plant in a large pot? How large will it need to be, please? I'd like to buy one now for my husband's birthday in April. We plan to move house in May and I'd like to keep the plant in a pot for the first year or so at least. We have the ideal sunny, sheltered spot in our new garden.

      Hello there
      Yes, this magnolia is ok in a clay soil as long as it is well-drained, and the flowers are fragrant. I hope this helps
