stunted growth & poor packaging
After each shipment arrived of our MANY orders, I kept getting told, well just tell us if it dies, we'll replace it. In the meantime, I have a horrible, beaten up tree or plant, because of their packaging. Most of the dirt spilled out of the bags, the soil treatment and startup placed losely in the boxes just bounced around during shipment and damaged what was probably decent looking plants. Because of the damage and shock all the plants and trees we received (over $1,000 purchased), most are very slow in growing and don't look much bigger than the day we planted them in the Spring (it is not mid-October). I will never buy from this company again. I have since purchased from 2 fantastic other companies online who know better than to put heavy bags of soil condition in with their boxed plants and trees.. they ship those separately. Their packaging and products were so far above Fast-Growing Trees in quality, timely shipments and growth !...

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Four Seasons Gardenia


Four Seasons Gardenia Planting Diretions

Seasonal Information

Planting in the garden should be limited to zones 8-10 unless special provisions exist for winter protection. Its compact structure lends itself well to potted culture.  When grown as a potted plant, maintain temperatures above 60oF, preferably 65oF.  Tolerant to short exposure to sub freezing outdoor temps but only if in Zone 8 and above.

Location/Exposure

Provide full to partial sun and southern, eastern, or western exposures are recommended.  Humidity above 50% is preferred, but short periods of drier conditions won’t harm it.

Soil Preferences

Gardenia requires a slightly acidic, well drained, ‘clean’ soil, with moderate water holding capacity.  Whether planting indoors or out, a suggested planting mix would be comprised of about 1/3 coarse sand (clean and coarse..builder’s sand is a good choice); 1/3 sphagnum peat (fibrous and weed free peat source is fine); and 1/3 dehydrated cow manure – usually estimated at 2-1-2 ratio (only use in garden plantings, never use manure in pots).  Compost is not recommended.

Planting – Pots/Containers

Using clay pots or containers will aid in developing a healthy root system.  Do not over pot.  Gardenias do very well in containers.  They can be allowed to become moderately rootbound before repotting, but stepping up to larger pots can be expected every few years.  Use a soil mix as noted above.   Choose a container only 1-2 times larger than the one you’re taking it from, and make sure there are adequate drain holes in the bottom.  Add enough soil so the plant will be at the correct level when it is placed.  Be gentle with the roots when potting, fill in the sides as you go, gently firming along the way to remove pockets of air without harming the roots.  Thoroughly water, allow the soil to settle, then rewater.

Planting -- Garden

Dig your hole to be twice the diameter of the container the plant came in, and at the same depth as the container.  Remove the plant from the container and do not disturb the roots, even if they are rootbound.  Make sure when you place the plant in the hole, it is at the same level or slightly above ground level.  Adjust the straightness and facial orientation; then backfill until the hole is about half full of soil.  Water and let the soil settle into the hole and around the plant, then finish filling with your mix, gently firming.  The surplus soil you removed could be used to build a small ‘dam’ around the perimeter of your hole, about 2-3” high which will form an earthen ‘saucer’ which you should fill with water.  Water twice a week for the first 6 weeks by filling your earthen saucer; after which the excess soil can be removed and you can mulch the plant.

Watering

Allow soil to reach a state of dryness visually between waterings.  Thoroughly saturate the soil when watering.  In containers, water to a point where a little water trickles out of the drain holes in the pot.

After planting in ground plantings, and once established, they should be watered once a week if natural rainfall is sparse; but follow the general guidelines above.

Container Gardenias will vary based on the size of the pot, soil, environment, etc. and will vary from twice per week to once every other week.

They require more water when actively growing in the winter.  In containers, do not allow the pot to become ‘droughty’, but always keep in mind they will be killed more often by over watering than from under watering.

Fertilization

Gardenias are moderate feeders, but avoid highly concentrated fertilizers as they will promote root diseases.  Steady feeding of a low concentration under warm temperatures and high light is preferred.  ¼ teaspoon per gallon of water using a balanced fertilizer having a ratio of 15-15-15 or a blooming fertilizer like 7-9-5 is a good choice, or follow label for gardenias.  Reduce feeding during the winter.

Weed Control

In the garden, mulch and hand weed for best results.

Pests and Diseases

Susceptible to spider mite, mealybugs, scale, and occasionally whitefly.  Cool, damp conditions in the promote root diseases, which are the biggest challenge to growing Gardenias.  Excessive fertilizer, low light conditions, long periods of wet soil accompanied by cool temperatures, all contribute to root diseases.

Pruning, Propagation, and other recs

Gardenias can tolerate hard pruning, but wait until after flowering.  Pruning in late summer or fall can reduce spring flowering.

“Bud blast” (flower buds drop before they open) can occur from a lack of temperature differential between day and night, common with indoor plantings.  Aim for 10-15oF degree difference between day and night.
