Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Dwarf Radicans Gardenia

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Dwarf Radicans Gardenia.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Dwarf Radicans Gardenia gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Dwarf Radicans Gardenia again after the transplant is complete.

Can I prune Gardenia Bushes in June ?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend waiting until after the gardenia is fully bloomed out. Then you can trim without the risk of loosing buds for next year.
Can I plant the gardenias in a large pot?
A shopper on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I ordered one of these but was sent something totally different. When I called and sent them a picture of what they sent me, I was told they did not have these anymore and I would only be given a store credit to buy something else. So even though I did order one, I never received it. I was not very happy with the way they just sent me something I had not ordered instead of letting me know they were sold out of theo plant I had ordered. Not very good customer service.
I live in Reno Nv. and I was wondering this site states its good in zones 7 - 10 but in Reno it get below freezing several times during the winter months, with this plant survive the outside?
Terence S on Sep 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend you expose this delicate plant to cold/ freezing temps as the root system and flowers would freeze. It likes humidity, some sun, and temps that are above 70 degrees. My experience with gardenias is that they are delicate and you must treat them with loving care! I have had probably 45 years of trying to raise them with more failures than successes. That said, good luck!io

Will the Dwarf Radicans do ok in Full sun in Zone 7 and potential frost in the winter?
Ken W on Aug 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in zone 8 and bought 8 1 gallon dwarf radicals at the beginning of last summer. I have them planted in full sun and they have done very well and thrived. This past winter was unusually cold (daytime temps in the teens for over a week at a time) and they did fine without any additional protection other than the mulch that I normally put down. We had some deep snow and the shrubs were buried under over 18 inches of snow for over a week. I did have some tips that were effected by this and I just trimmed them back when there was no new growth from those areas in the spring. After that they put out new shoots and I had plenty of blooms.
I hope this helps you even though a bit long winded.
