Question: how to care for gardenia plants

Answer: Gardenias love a soil mix high in organic matter content and an acidic pH (about 5.5-6.0). Fertilize periodically (monthly to every 6 weeks) with an acidic fertilizer such as azalea/camelia food or a liquid fertilizer like Miracid. Keep evenly watered. Give it a part sun location. Half day morning sun is best. Enjoy your gardenia.
