Answer: Your gardenia will bloom best if it gets 4 hours of morning sunshine so move it somewhere on your patio where it will get some morning sun. Gardenias will actually grow in the ground in Tucson, as long as they are protected somewhat by hot afternoon sunshine. You can feed every 2-3 weeks with a half strength dilution of an acidified water soluable fertilizer such as Miracle Gro. Best wishes with your gardenia!
