Hi there green fingers

First dig a hole larger than the plant and fill the void with general all purpose compost.
Cut the net and discard .
Loosen gently some of the root structure.
Plant the magnolia , firming down the soil and water well

I would plant in sun or partial shade

Feed well frequently

Others may have certain tips but I find they look after themselves when established

Runner beans grow from seed quite easily up a net or canes n the sun - water well

Hi Rory,
Could you not provide the hole instead of expecting poor Caz to dig one?

Hi Caroline

I forgot to mention I have just had delivered a hole for your stuffing if the chicken has not got one.
Some chickens are sold without holes for stuffing at discount
