Norman,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

It would be best to wait until late winter to do the pruning on the gardenia. A little trimming is okay now but you need to wait until late winter to do any significant pruning.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
