Plant gardenia in sheltered borders or containers in any well drained, rich fertile, neutral to acid soil. Choose a sheltered position in dappled or semi shade. Water regularly until gardenia plants are fully established. Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the soils acidity over time.
Feed hardy gardenia plants regularly throughout the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Whilst this variety of gardenia is perfectly hardy, it will appreciate some winter protection during particularly cold periods. In very cold climates, container-grown plants may be moved to a cool, frost-free position for the winter. In spring, lightly prune stems to maintain their shape.

Bought two of these a few months ago, followed instructions on soil/potting etc, they have barely grown an inch, leaves keep going yellow and dropping off, googled this plant and found information contrary to that on here, it said they are an 'indoor plant' and should be in ericacious soil.

I had this sent, came in looking great; after leaving in the pot for the a few days; put in the garden. What happened? Slowly died. Phoned and complained, and they sent another 2 - same crap - just sits in garden, no new leaves; old leaves turn brown and die.
Worst plant ever, and to spend over £20 + PP - -JOKE.
