The invention discloses an Magnolia officinalis planting method, and belongs to the field of Magnolia officinalis planting. The Magnolia officinalis planting includes land selection and soil preparation, reproduction, field management, and harvesting and processing. In land selection and soil preparation, subacid and fertile sandy soil mixed with yellow soil and light clay is selected, a base fertilizer is applied, turning and thorough-harrowing is performed, flattening is performed, a greenhouse is built, a circular water storage tank is constructed in the greenhouse, infrared irradiation lamps are fixed on an upper end of the water storage tank, a water pump is fixed on an inner bottom of the water storage tank, beds with the width of 1.2-1.5 m are arranged on a ground surface in the water storage tank, drainage pipes are arranged between the beds, and two ends of the drainage pipes communicate with the water storage tank. In field management, water control of seedlings is performed, a rainwater collection tank is arranged on the top of the greenhouse, the rainwater collection tan communicates with the water storage tank through a water pipe, rainwater can flow to the water storage tank from the rainwater collection tank to be stored in rainy seasons; and water in the water storage tank is supplied to the drainage pipes through the water pump in drought, and bed soil can be watered. The technical scheme can effectively solve the problem that the survival rate of Magnolia officinalis planting is influenced due to rotted roots caused by waterlogging.
