I absolutely love Gardenias, but we never have good luck with them. We just bought 3 more Gardenia bushes and were wondering about the best type of care for them. Thank you

Vicki,

Gardenias love moist soil conditions but need good drainage so it doesn't stay soggy. They prefer a slightly acidic soil and respond well to fertilizers for acid loving plants. Work a few inches of compost or peat moss into the planting bed prior to planting. Provide them a location with plenty of morning sun but some afternoon shade if you can.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
