Marvel at magnolias in your garden this spring
If you want some show stopping flowers to enjoy this spring, you’ll love our beautiful magnolias. With their goblet or star-shaped flowers, magnolia trees and shrubs rank among most people’s favourite plants and they have a gorgeous fragrance too. At Homebase we have four varieties to choose from in pretty pinks, whites and purples. They thrive in any moist, fertile garden soil and will grow and flower best if you plant them in full sun. They’re suited to beds and containers – and you’ll often see magnolias growing up a wall.
