Cultural Notes: 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. Prune lightly to shape.
