|It's Easy to Plant your Frost Proof Gardenia
Specific Directions for Frost Proof Gardenia
Plant your Frost Proof Gardenias in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Frost Proof Gardenias are shade tolerant and prefer afternoon shade to morning shade. Although Frost Proof Gardenias prefer acidic soil, they will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay. For the best results make sure that the pH balance of your soil is between 5.5 to 6.5.
Keep the soil moist, but not soggy or over saturated. Frost Proof Gardenias need about an inch of water a week. Don't let the soil dry out completely between waterings. Make sure that your soil is well draining, and that your Gardenia's never sit in standing water. To help keep the moisture in apple a layer of mulch around the base of your Frost Proof Gardenia.
Fragrant blooms will emerge on your Frost Proof Gardenias early every Spring and may last until the fall, while the green leaves will last all year. Apply an acidic fertilizer every Spring to your Frost Proof Gardenia. If the leaves turn yellow your soil may be too alkaline. Add sulfur to your soil to lower the pH balance, and add lime to increase the pH balance.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Frost Proof Gardenia.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Frost Proof Gardenia gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
