These plants bloom at different times. I use Holly Tone Fertilizer. Am I supposed to fertilize them after they finish blooming in the spring? And then when else am I supposed to fertilize them? Thanks. Leonard

Each of the plants you mention will be happy with an annual application of fertilizer. Use one especially formulated for acid loving plants such as an Azalea/Rhododendron fertilizer. You can use it on your gardenia, too. Apply once a year, in the spring, in amounts as recommended on the label. Best wishes with your garden.
