How To Pick The Best Spot In
Your Garden
To Plant Gardenia
A favorite among gardeners for their elegant white blooms and captivating scent, gardenias are delicate, finicky perennials that require specific growing conditions to thrive.
Since gardenias flourish in locations that provide a balance of sunlight and shade, an ideal spot in your garden would be one that receives morning sun and afternoon shade.
It is also important to choose a location that offers some natural shelter to your gardenias and protects it from frost. Consider planting near a wall, fence, or other barriers.
Lastly, check your soil composition
and pH levels as gardenia plants require well-draining soil with a pH range of 5.0 to 6.0 for optimal growth.
