Gardenia Care Tips Basics

Gardenia Care tips

  • Before planting your gardenias make sure the
    soil PH is in the range of 6.5-5. Too high of a PH will prevent your gardenia
    from absorbing essential nutrients.
  • Plant your gardenia only as deep as the root
    ball is tall, but dig the hole 2-3 times the width of the root ball.
  • Gardenias will grow best at least 1 inch of
    water a week, so if you are experiencing a dry spell make sure to give your
    plant a drink.

    • Mulching around your plant will help ensure that
      the soil stays moist, and will help reduce the need to weed.
  • Do not plant your gardenia in full shade!
    Gardenias are sun lovers so make sure you plant them in an area that will receive
    full sun to part shade.
  • Enjoy! Gardenias have some of the most
    beautiful, and fragrant blooms around!
