Question: Magnolia

Hello, having to cover the outcropping roots of a magnolia grandiflora with about thirty centimeters of soil, can there be problems for the plant? The plant is twelve meters high and is about thirty years old, we have redone the screeds of the driveway and now it is low compared to the plan of the garden and to have a minimum of background for the lawn we have to add some soil ... thanks

Answer: Magnolia

Dear Eddy,

if the soil is well drained and there are no water stagnation problems there should be no problems for your plant, also because it is very large and has been planted for some time, and therefore it should not suffer. Generally this type of intervention creates problems for the part of the trunk that is "submerged" by the new ground; to prevent the trunk from suffering, try to place pebbles around it rather than the soil, so that it continues to "breathe".
