A little over 2 years ago I sent for a free offer from the newspaper for a bare root magnolia tree. I don't know quite what I expected, but when it arrived it was a straight stick with roots on one end.
I duly planted it and throughout the year nothing really happened except it got a bit nobbley.
Last year the nobbles grew a bit bigger and turned into 6 flowers.
This year I should get 12 flowers.
In 50 years time my stick may have become a tree!
