The Q&A Archives: Pruning Gardenia

Question: When and how much should a gardenia bush be pruned?

Answer: Gardenias do quite well without pruning. However, sometimes pruning is necessary to keep an older bush "in bounds". Pruning should be done soon after flowering to avoid reducing next year's bloom. Thin out old, non-productive growth and remove broken or diseased branches.
