    • Norm...has it been healthy up till this year, or has it been getting weaker for a while. If the latter...poor shoot growth, underdeveloped leaves, no flowers etc., then maybe the tree has a disease which may or may not be curable. However, and I hope this is the case, it may have just been frost damage. Late and unexpected frosts can burn and destroy developing flower and leaf buds if they are extremely cold. I've had whole, established Wisterias at work devastated by a late frost and lost the whole years flower display.  This year, a lot of my Box topiary (you may have seen them in other threads) have been affected by frost...at first I thought it was 'Box Blight', a fatal disease of Box, but I now think it's frost scorch, where we had a particularly hard frost one night in early May and the developing tender buds were completely frozen and killed...the same may have happened to your Magnolia. There's not a lot you can do physically, but as long as new growth starts to appear and grow strongly in the summer sunshine, then the tree isn't dead and I wouldn't worry too much. Keep an eye on it. 
    • So was pretty much sold on the Longines Hydroconquest and decided that all I had to do was wait until lockdown was over, visit the Jewellers and select the right model.  Then I saw the Oris Aquis on offer for £1200 and really liked the look. I know that Oris does not have the heritage of Longines but they do look very good watches and I am now confused with a little over a month to run until my Birthday.
    • You'd think that a quick spray with WD40 might be the answer, but the stuff stinks to high heaven...trust me, the baby oil (and I use the best...Johnsons, and if you're watching Johnson marketing chaps, all royalties to the forum, please!) is the best solution I've ever found because it's unscented. Try it on your stainless toaster, hob, oven, sink, BBQ etc... it really does work. Cracking job, John! Well done, chap!
