The Q&A Archives: First Love Gardenia

Question: I was wondering what constitutes partial sun (how many hours daily) and do these plants do well in a pot.

Answer: Partial sun for a gardenia would mean protection from hot afternoon sunshine. If you have a site with morning sun and afternoon shade, a gardenia will be happy. Yes, they adapt quite readily to a container. Be sure to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet! Enjoy!
