Cultural Notes: Plant in well drained soil to which compost or manure has been added. The root system is shallow and sensitive, so mulch generously with a quality mulch to keep plants healthy throughout the year and control weeds. Container plants should be potted in good quality potting mix with a high organic content. Gardenias require a deep, well-structured soil which has been enriched with compost or manure (cow or horse). They like acidic, cool, moist, well-drained soils. If soil is too alkaline it can cause yellowing of the leaves due to a magnesium deficiency. This can be corrected with an application of Epsom salts. Requires a warm, sheltered position, protected from frost. Early morning sun with light shade in the afternoon is preferential. Gardenias can scorch in full sun. Prune lightly after flowering to maintain shape. Fertilise regularly during the growing season.
