10 reviews for Fool Proof™ Gardenia

    Plants were great. Lots of buds. Some flowers have already opened. I thought they might be a little bit bigger, but I know that once it gets warm in So. CT and I get them in the ground, they will grow like crazy. I just hope they truly are FOOL PROOF GARDENIAS and will survive the winter here unlike the one I bought last year from The Tree Center that is nice and crispy right now!

    First time planting these .I bought four for containers. They bloomed all summer.The fragrance was fantastic. I highly recommend these. For containers

    The Fool Proof Gardenias arrived healthy & in bloom. It’s the only compact & upright gardenia. An August Beauty Gardenia I planted splayed open showing me the difference. Fool Proof has small, narrow leaves. I heard Frost Proof can splay open making Fool Proof an improvement. Leaves were mostly green. For yellow leaves I add magnesium as that is a common deficiency in the soil here. I found an iron mineral supplement that helps also. I planted the gardenias two inches above grade, with the roots showing. For prevention I added worm castings to prevent white flies.

    I have ordered many plants. They all arrived healthy. And they have flower buds even early July. Very happy.

    A lovely addition to the gardens. To avoid yellow leaves make sure the soil is slightly acidic and not alkaline, so try pine mulch. Blooms throughout the year.

    Plants were gorgeous, nice round shape, loaded with buds and dark green leaves! Will order again from PBM

    Plant had yellow leaves. Some buds have formed but there is quite a bit of bud drop.

    Plant was full but the leaves were quite yellow.

    Plants were very healthy and arrived on time. I will make Plants By Mail my place to go.
