Magnolia 'Manchu Fan'

25th April 2010

Rather an unfortunate story - I had spent all morning looking around a nursery and the proprietor had been very charming so I was determined to go away with something, but there was nothing I really wanted, so I picked out a Magnolia to add to the new planting. You can never have too many Magnolias, after all.
I planted it as soon as I got home, took this picture and went in for some lunch. A couple of days later I remembered to take a tree guard up to protect it. Too late, rabbits had sliced it off at ground level. It didn't regrow.
I had it for a few days, and was reminded not to forget to protect young trees in future.
