The glossy green leaves and fragrant, creamy-white flowers make gardenias a standout feature, whether used in the garden, as a hedge, grown as a standard, or adorning a pot.
Gardenias like a warm spot with dappled light, or morning sun. They prefer an acidic soil enriched with composted organic matter. In pots use a potting mix formulated for azaleas and camellias.
Feed with a specialised fertiliser for acid-loving plants every 2-3 months from late winter to late-autumn. Add a regular watering with seaweed solution to the regime.
