Magnolias are starting to flower here in the Netherlands, about two weeks earlier than they should.  Fortunately we’ve been spared late frosts, which can easily spoil Magnolia flowers and lead to much disappointment.    If you are particularly interested in Magnolias, you should visit Arboretum Wespelaar at Haacht in Belgium (open on Wednesdays and Sundays).  With one of the largest collections we know of, you’ll see hundreds of cultivars and species.
