How to take care of Gardenia jasminoides
These beautiful shrubs usually grow in a round shape, with glossy and leathery leaves. It blooms in mid-spring to early summer over a fairly long season. Gardenias require an acid soil, ideally moist and high in organic matter, but well drained. You can place them outside from May-September in a sheltered spot (near a wall). Take indoors in October-April. Protect from frost. Grows in partial shade to sun. Keep it moist, but not waterlogged. Good air circulation can help keep pests down. Gardenias are unfortunately prone to pests, but they are easily controlled with environmentally sprays.
Gardenias need alot of humidity to bloom properly. Provide humidity by placing plants on a tray of gravel or stones, fill the tray with water so that the bottom pebbles rest in the water and the top ones are dry. By keeping the tray constantly half-filled with water, a nicely humid enviroment will be created.
