The Q&A Archives: Pruning gardenias

Question: When and how much can I prune an overgrown gardenia? The bush is 7 feet tall by 8 feet wide. Thanks.

Answer: You can reduce your gardenias size by one third without causing too much stress. If you need to reduce the size even more, plan on doing it over a 2-3 year period. Best wishes with your gardenia!
