Care Information

General Care

Watering: Water every 4-5 days depending on weather/environment. Sun:Plant your magnolia in full sun. It will also grow in partial shade as long as it gets at least four hours a day of direct, unfiltered sunlight. Pruning: Pruning should be done during the growing season, after blooming.

Planting Guidelines

Magnolias are moderately fast-growing trees. The southern magnolia grows in acidic, loamy, moist, sandy, well-drained and clay soils. Southern magnolia should be planted 2inches above surrounding soil. This will help the roots to grow downwards. If planted too deep roots will grow towards the surface, creating a tree that is less stable. It can take 4 years to develop an established root system. Water and apply 3-5 inches of mulch around base to prevent weeds. Mulch should be kept at least 1inch away from stem.

Winter Care

If not already planted into the ground, keep in a pot/container. The Magnolia can be kept indoors until ready to plant in early Spring. Keep in an area of full sun/partial shade, water as needed.

Potting & Container

Southern Magnolias can be grown in a container and transplanted into the ground in late winter/early spring. If keeping in a container, use a 3 gallon for the first 6-12 months.Increase container size as tree grows. Container-grown plants should be transplanted in spring or fall, mulched, fertilized at planting, and well-watered. Avoid fertilizing the tree during its slowest time of growth in fall and winter. Continued watering and mulching is required for successful establishment.

It gave them a focus as they choose a special spot to plant the tree and look forward to watching it grow, feeling his pressence with them,

Poor customer service
The tree and the olive cross are beautiful, however the customer service leaves something to be desired. I sent this tree to someone who had lost a parent, and was not notified by the company that the olive cross that I ordered and paid for was not sent with the tree. I had the person I ordered this gift for searching the packaging as my shipped notification explicitly stated that the cross was included. It wasn’t until I called that I was told that they were out of olive crosses and that it would ship later. It took yet another phone call to obtain the tracking information for the cross. It arrived almost two weeks after the tree did. I ordered them as a set, to be delivered together and was very disappointed to hear that this did not happen. I was also disappointed in the customer service from start to finish and likely will not be a returning customer. My complaints were met with many excuses and I felt as though I was being given an attitude when I voiced my frustrations.
Good Afternoon Jenifer-
Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. Your feedback is important to us.
My deepest thoughts, prayers and condolences for the recipient and their family. The loss of anyone is difficult, let alone your mother, I know that is truly heartbreaking. I am so sorry we fell short of your expectations and the level of customer service that we expect from our employees and you deserve. I know that you wanted this special memorial to be presented and arrive with the same deep felt thought and concern as you had intended when you ordered it as a set.
When we became out of stock of the Olive Cross, we should have in fact notified you and made you aware; you are very correct. Your feedback has made us look at changing the process and policies, for cases as such. In addition, we have taken this opportunity to further train, coach, and counsel our customer service individuals.
You, the customer are the most important reason and purpose of our business, and again I apologize that you did not feel treated this way. If you would ever consider giving us another try, please contact me directly and I can ensure you , I will do everything within my control to "re-earn" your trust and business as a valued customer.

In Memory Southern Magnolia Tree
I sent the In Memory Southern Magnolia Tree (lg) to a dear friend who lost her sister to Covid. It was my first time using the Seeds of Life website and ordering on line was convenient and easy. My friend received the tree in 5 days and I was sent regular tracking updates which I appreciated. I have not seen my gift but my friend indicated the it arrived beautifully packaged and in good condition. She said it was one of the nicest gifts she received. However I was disappointed to hear that it arrived without any blossoms/flowers. For that reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5. I realize that it was probably due to mid March delivery but was hoping for it to look more like the photo on website. However, I would definitively use Seeds of Life again.

WHAT A WONDERDERFUL WAY TO SHOW YOU CARE WITH LIFE OF A TREE OR FLOWER
I have sent magnolia trees about 4-5 times now in lieu of flowers for a sympathy & memorial gift. I always get the same reaction that it was the most thoughtful gift they had ever received during their time of a loss. I think the concept that it's a living tree that they can share with their family and love ones; from planting it to simply take time to visit it while it grows as well as a place to reflect on their loved one's life without having to leave their property. It's a thoughtful memorial gesture and always very touching to the ones receiving it. I love sending them.

Wonderful Memorial Gift
I have ordered from Seeds of Life many times, and those who receive them are always so impressed and grateful for the sentiment -- however, this time around I received a picture from the recipient and thought the tree looked rather sparse - nothing like the picture on the website. I expected a more robust magnolia tree.
Hello,
I am sorry that the tree was not as expected. Our Magnolia Trees will have their new Spring flush within the next month. We will be happy to send you another tree in April. Please send me your address, and I will get you into the system to receive another one in April. Again, I am sorry that you were not happy with the tree.

Memory Tree for Moondance
My friend’s cat came down with kidney disease and his health began to deteriorate. Moondance passed away last month and it was very tough for her. He was her companion and best friend. Another co-worker and I wanted to do something to help her be reminded of the good times she shared with Moondance. She is an avid lover of plants, trees, and all things nature, and recently bought her first house. We felt a memory tree would be the perfect thing for her to plant at her new home in honor of Moondance. She absolutely loved it! Very grateful to seeds of life for helping to provide this special gift to her.

Disappointed
The tree itself is lovely. The service from this company is less than subpar. I couldn’t in good conscious ever recommend them to anyone. I ordered a tree for 3 day shipping. 3 days came and went, it had not be delivered. By day 5 I reached out to this company and they said they would look into it. Day 6 they said it had been lost and they would send a replacement to arrive in 2 days. Being that I paid $35 for shipping I asked they refund that cost because I did not receive the 3 day shipping I paid for. They declined. The tree did arrive on day 8. A memory tree. Way past the funeral and grieving window. Any other company who experiences issues as such makes some attempt to right their wrong, not seeds of life!
Hello Jaimie,
I am sorry that your original tree did not arrive on time. We would like to make this right for you, and will be happy to refund the shipping. Please send me your order number, and I will get that processed for you. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Nice gift, bad service
The trees themselves were very nice but I had issues with the service. It was not clear which day it would arrive and it arrived late for the service. When I realized it would be late I called and asked for solutions and the only option given was to change the address, which I did. The trees were still delivered to the funeral home late so the bereaved family had to go pick them up. Once when I called and said who I was and what the call was in regards to I was hung up on. Overall this business is not very well run despite having nice products.
Hello,
I am sorry that there was confusion on when your trees would arrive. I sincerely apologize that your call was dropped. We do strive to provide great customer service and will be working on correcting any issues.

I have always hated the idea of sending flowers that wither up and die to people who have lost a loved one. In the past I have planted trees and bushes to honor people I have lost.

Beautiful Tribute to my Dear Friend
My friends and I ordered two Magnolia Jane Trees in memory of our life long friend. We gave them to her two daughters who have children, who called their grandmother “Nu Na”. The tree has a medal tag with “Nu Na Tree” engraved on it. They loved it.

Ordered this magnolia tree and name tag for a friend who had to deliver their baby knowing he wouldnt survive outside the womb. He was a beautiful little boy that was too precious for this world. I had purchased this tree and dropped it off for them without knowing they had wanted the magnolia tree to symbolize their little boy. It was a great gift for them and their family. The delivery was very quick and the packaging was on point! Thank you so much Seeds Of Life.

The tree is beautiful! It was neatly packaged and I received it sooner than expected. I was always informed of where the tree was during shipping. The memory tag is equally nice. This is best way to honor my Dad. He will still watch our family grow,

Wonderful idea for someone who has lost a loved one.
We had a wonderful experience with seeds of life. We ordered on a Thursday and it took about a week even with COVID for normal delivery. We had mistakenly ordered a tree that wouldn’t grow well in the climate we had sent it to and they let us know and changed the order easily for us. Amazing customer service and value for money. Thank you.

The magnolia ann tree arrived within 3 days and that was during the pandemic. They have amazing customer service as I changed my mind after ordering and they acted immediately and changed the order for me. It will be a great memory for me to think of my best furry friend! 100% will be using this service for gifts again! Thank you!

Magnolia tree Large
The tree did not arrive in time for the funeral but the next day.(which was unfortunate but I assume that was fedex) I had the recipients send me a photo and was a little disappointed the top leaves were yellow and they had spelled the name of the deceased person on the tag wrong. However I gave them 4 star rating because their customer service was excellent .The people I spoke with were very polite understanding and told me they would replace the name tag. I would definitely like to order from them again since I like their trees

Perfect gift in memory of a loved one
I sent a magnolia tree to a friend after her father passed away. She was very pleased with it. There are many options to choose from and seeds of life keeps you notified in real time:when it is sent, when it will be delivered, and notification of after it was delivered so i had no questions. I also had made a purchase for another friend but since she lives in a state that does not accept deliveries of trees, I was contacted by seeds of life, given options and then refunded immediately. Great company! Excellent product

Great Customer Service
I was recently part of 2 separate group purchases for trees. I was in charge of one, in my rush I left one members name off the card. I was frantic! I called and iMessage and emailed customer service, well they emailed back so quickly I was shocked. They put my mind at ease and corrected my mistake. Both ladies that received trees (both had moms pass away) LOVED them. We were referred by another friend who’s family gave her a tree upon the death of her baby. Each family took a cutting and made trees from her original tree and named them The Troy Tree. We shared this option with each recipient, as their children move away they can take a cutting from their Grandma Tree.

This was such a wonderful gift. I sent this to a friend of mine who lost her twin sister. I sent it a day or two after the funeral.

Remembrance Magnolia Tree (medium)
Every step from ordering, delivery and presentation went smoothly and beautifully . The recipients loved the tree and sentiment behind it after the passing of our friends mother . I ordered on July 4th and they received on Saturday July 6 . The tree had no flowers but was tall and healthy . Perhaps the tree is not in bloom now . I recommend ordering from this company !
