Gardenia Standard Twisted Stem in 17cm pot (KB7253)

Gardenias are not the easiest house plants to grow, and are often discarded after flowering. However, they are well worth making an extra effort for! Gardenias require careful placement to thrive. Choose a brightly lit position, but not in the direct glare of the sun, with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). Avoid positions close to cold draughts and radiators.
Water freely between spring and autumn using tepid rainwater where possible, and allowing the pot to drain well after each watering. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to dry out. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Gardenia appreciates a humid atmosphere - stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant.
