Answer: Your new gardenias will appreciate moist but not soggy soil so water as often as necessary to keep the soil moist. It will require more frequent watering during the spring and summer months; less during fall and winter. Gardenia's require acidic soil; feed every 2-3 weeks with a half-strength dilution of acidified liquid fertilizer (such as Peter's or Miracle-Gro). Enjoy your new plants!
