Soil: Gardenias need moist but well-drained soil; they don't tolerate dry conditions, particularly when they are in bloom. They also prefer soil to be on the acidic side and benefit from a good layer of mulch to keep the roots cool.
Light: Full sun to part shade
Water: Average moisture is preferred. Plants will do best if they get supplemental irrigation, particularly during hot, dry weather.
Spacing: 3 feet
Fertilizing: Apply a granular flowering shrub or rose fertilizer in early spring and again in late spring if desired.
Winterizing: For the best-looking foliage, plant gardenias out of the path of strong, drying winds. They benefit from a good 3" layer of shredded bark mulch.
Maintenance & pruning: Little pruning is required; prune after the main bloom in late spring if desired. If you wish to grow gardenias indoors, they must be placed in very cool, very bright conditions, and should not be allowed to dry out. A sunroom, conservatory, or enclosed porch is far preferable to normal indoor conditions. Plants should be moved outdoors during warm weather for best results.
