The Q&A Archives: Gardenia

Question: I recently purchased one of your Gardenias and live here in Cottage Grove, Minnesota. What should I do to make sure it comes back year after year?

Answer: Most gardenias will not be hardy in your Minnesota climate so you'll want to plan on taking yours indoors when the summer is over. Gardenias can be wintered over in a bright location when watered regularly and misted frequently (to counteract dry indoor air). If it's happy, your gardenia will even bloom indoors. Best wishes with your gardenia.
