How to plant Magnolia from Seeds?

  • Pick a seed pod off an existing Magnolia tree in September or October. The seed pods are oval-shaped objects that are slightly furry. If the pod has begun to open, you can look inside it and see the brightly colored orange seeds.
  • Place the seed pod in a dry location and allow it to dry for two or three days. As it dries, the seeds will loosen from the pod. Hold the pod over a paper towel or newspaper and shake it firmly to dislodge the magnolia seeds.
