Gardenia Bushes
Posted by Patricia from Virginia- zone on 2008-04-03 08:35:00

i love my gardenia bushes and want to keep them going. i bought them last year and one did not make it. I put them outside in front of the house, near concrete. i did not know this could cause the acidity to increase. i have spread blood meal, bone meal and epsom salts in order to help them grow, bud and stay alive. What can i do to help them continue living, growing and budding for years to come? Bringing them inside is not an option as space is limited, i have 6. Please help.
