Gardenia 'Crown Jewels'

Cape Jasmine

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.

  1. Gardenia Crown Jewels

    By Leah Barker 23-07-2014

    I ordered 2x9cm plants what I got was 2x7cm pots - very small plants and not cheap. On the label of the box it was delivered in it stated 2 x 9cm pots enclosed when I complained of the misrepresentation I got a load of nothing. I suggest you read the terms and conditions very very carefully. I do not trust buying anything from them in future

  2. Yellowing leaves

    By Denis Rumbold 02-07-2014

    My Gardenia 'Crown Jewels' leaves are yellowing and falling off. I repotted it yesterday in some compost from my compost bin to see if I can save it. I could see a few new roots but nowhere near what I was expecting. It doesn't appear to be doing anything
