I am a beginner and have some questions about a potted Gardenia plant that I brought recently.
How do I deadhead after flowering?
|Deadheading is simply the removal of the entire flower when the petals turn brown. Gardenias are considered self-cleaning, meaning the spent flowers will drop off on their own but if you'd rather not wait for that to happen you can simply snip the spent flower off your plant with a pair of scissors. Just clip the stem where the flower is attached. Best wishes with your gardenia!
