no blooms
I have a magnolia tree in my front yard and it did not bloom. I do not know a lot about it, we just moved into the house last Sep. It does have a live oak shading it. Do you have any ideal why it won't bloom? Does it need any special plant food?

"Hi
Well you may have told me what was wrong in your question. Magnolias need full sun to develop flowers so if that oak has shaded the magnolia, the magnolia will not develop flowers. It really depends on  how shaded the site is. Your magnolia requires at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight to bloom."
