Well fair enough, but rest assured, they will shoot new leaves provided they are still alive. if you want to check, just sratch into the stem with your fingernail. If it is nice and green then your cool. New leaves will shoot from the nodes along the stems when you have had a good spell of warmer weather.
I have some photos of mine but have to up load. One lost a heap from lower down over winter but now the sapis flowing well again with some warmer weather, there are shoots all over Not that it was going to matter.

Hi, I just have a question about magnolia little gems I have recently transplanted. I had 23 of them along front of my house and they are about 1m in height and very healthy.
They were savagly ripped from the earth by an excavator no soil attached to the roots but long roots intact. I put them straight away into new pots ( 45L ) with new soil and watered them and seasoled them. They are looking very droopy in the leaves.
Should I prune them at all or just wait to see if they pick up? Should I give them molassis?

Just my usual little gem problems. They are looking really average at the moment. Pic below.
I think my wife may have over watered them? They are in raised garden beds with brick retaining walls about 500mm high.
They're looking even worse after the heat today. Lots and lots of brown leaves. Is it possible they've been too wet? Anything I can do to encourage some new leaf growth?
