Double the Blooms for Double the Fragrance
Why Double Blooming Gardenia Trees?
Evoking some of the best memories of summers past, the Gardenia Tree is known for its rich, intoxicating fragrance. But the Double Blooming Gardenia has even more to offer, with fuller, 3-inch double blossoms that blanket the entire tree.
Place them in pots around the patio as topiaries, or plant in your garden to create your own personal paradise. Apart from the wonderful perfume that welcomes guests to any space, the pretty white petals and shiny, deep green leaves maintain their brightness for months at a time.
The Double Blooming Gardenia’s flowers welcome spring and re-bloom throughout the summer, creating an encore of elegance that lasts up to three months. And since it’s a steady grower that adapts to different soil types and shady areas, there’s little upkeep involved in getting the rich blooms and fragrance for yourself.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: These trees can handle full sun all the way down to partial shade, depending on your location, and love well-drained soil. If you’re in a colder northern climate, plant in full to partial sunlight (4 to 8 hours of sunlight daily). Southern growers can place the Double Blooming Gardenia in areas with partial sunlight to partial shade (4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight).
Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice the width. Place your tree in the hole, backfill the soil, and water your tree. Finally, mulch to conserve moisture.
To plant in a container, select a pot that’s twice as large as the shipped container and ensure it has drainage holes. Use organic soil and place your tree in the pot.
Then, place it in a location with bright sun and ample humidity. A south-facing window in your home should provide ample sun exposure.
2. Watering: Water your tree weekly unless you have rainfall. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil for dryness, about 2 or 3 inches down.
For potted plants, check the soil and water until you see it coming from the drainage holes.
You can keep the humidity up around the plant by misting it daily or placing it on a tray with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates, it will feed humidity to the atmosphere around the gardenia.
3. Fertilizing: Your Double Blooming Gardenias can be fertilized every 3 to 4 weeks, from April through November. You can use a formula like 30-10-10, or a fertilizer high in nitrogen.
FGT Tip: If you notice yellow leaves, you can mix in a tablespoon of Epsom Salt with a gallon of water and apply this solution around your plant.
4. Pruning: Gardenias are best pruned in the summer after the plant has bloomed. Remove any broken or dead branches, and prune back any branches with spent flowers.

Delivery was fast, packaging was excellent, plants were really healthy. Can’t wait to see the first blooms.
Rough right now as the temperature dropped the day after we received it. I do hope it survives. I’ve been babysitting it
Very green, beautiful foliage. Some branch growth spurts. Should I trim them back. Repotted in a large planter.
It was very hot in Texas and when the gardenia arrived there have been a lot of yellow leaves in the box. The pack was very nice tight to the box. I was very careful with the pack, since yesterday lots of yellow leaves on the ground and on the tree. I hope I will have a chance and the gardenia will recover. So far great worries. The first time a saw such a plant on Rodeo Drive in the month of March, very beautiful. I hope my tree recovers. Thanks
Please let us know if you continue to have concerns with your plant and we'll be happy to help!
Great, the plant arrived as promised, planted and thriving Thank you
