Plant Gardenia 'Kleim's Hardy' 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.

    By Trevor Boosey 12-05-2015

    Not sure if its me or the plants have worked realy hard on these using rain water and acid based compost, yet still the same size as when I planted last year, also seem to attract bugs all the time!!
