Sowing, Seeds, Planting Choose a sheltered position in dappled or semi shade. Prefers well-drained, fertile and slightly acidic soil or grow in a large container. Water regularly until gardenia plants are fully established. Should tolerate a light frost, otherwise grow indoors in lime-free compost.
Care Tips Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the soils acidity over time. Over spring and summer keep the compost moist, but not saturated. Over winter, when the plants are not growing, reduce the watering, without allowing the compost to dry out between watering. Use rainwater where possible, and always at room temperature. Use a high nitrogen liquid feed every week in spring and summer. Over winter, feed with a balanced fertiliser every five or six weeks. Trim lightly in early spring after flowering to help maintain a neat shape.

Reviewed 23rd June 2017 by Sheila Maries

Third time lucky! Two previous purchases from other nurseries were very disappointing and did not survive. I could not believe the difference in quality when my plant arrived from Sarah Raven. It looks so healthy, the first flower has opened (looks exactly like the online photograph) and there are many more to come. I do hope that new stock will be available very soon. Since I became a customer I have been very impressed with the quality of plants and the eco friendly packaging. I am one very satisfied customer. Many thanks to all concerned.
