Hi we planted our teddy bear magnolia which was in a pot over 2m tall in to the soil and it is in shock now only 3 weeks after planting- started to brown almost straight away. The leaves have turned brown and are wilted and crisp. We have fertilised and seasol the soil and are watering multiple times per week. Should we removed all the dry leaves ? Twigs are still green when you scratch it.

No that is not necessary.  Now, slowly, add several tablespoons of old semi-rotten milk directly to the Trunk, you should start with 4 Tablespoons in the Morning, once every two days or so.  What this is doing is providing to the plant the nutrients that it will not receive through other means, this will in turn start a domino effect in providing parts of the plant with the nutrients that promote healing, thereby   reducing the shock of the transplantation, 

You should continue to do this treatment every couple of days, and you will see the difference within 14 or so days.
