The Q&A Archives: gardenia tree care

Question: Will a healthy gardenia tree survive on the outside year round in Monroe ga? If so, what
type of plant food should it receive and how often?

Answer: Martha,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

You are in hardiness zone 7b and most gardenias are only rated to zone 8 so I think it would be generally risky to plant one in your area.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
