How To Care

When planting your Kleim's Hardy Gardenia be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant Gardenias. However, if you avoid freezing and extremely hot temperatures you can plant any time of the year.

This Gardenia requires full sun to part shade and prefers moist, well-drained, fertile, acidic soil. If you have alkaline soil, be sure to amend your soil. To acidify your soil mend with compost, elemental sulfur, or use fertilizers specific for acid loving plants. Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution. To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting. Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first year after planting. After the first year, it is best to allow the soil to begin to dry out in between waterings. In very dry and hot environments, misting your gardenia's leaves daily or every other day will keep your plant happy. Mulching at about 2 inches deep is highly recommended for gardenias. Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your plant in extreme temperatures. Fertilize in spring with our 6 month balanced, slow release fertilizer for best results. You don’t need to prune gardenias, but pruning after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant. Remove dead or crowded branches any time. Avoid heavy pruning or pruning for shape anytime from fall until bloom as buds form in fall.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. You can treat scale, whiteflies, and aphids naturally with neem oil or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. The Kleim's Hardy Gardenia is disease resistant so it isn't likely you will encounter fungal issues with this variety.

Gardenias

We bought 3 gardenias. They got here within 1 day of sending, packaging was terrific. 2 of the gardenias looked good from the beginning. One was smaller and had lots of yellow leaves. We planted the 3 of them the next day. 2 are doing fine, have flower buds etc. The gardenia with the yellow leaves has more yellow and is not looking healthy. Will wait & see before ordering a replacement.
