Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 through 10 and are the most widely available gardenias. These plants are often considered fairly difficult to grow successfully, but they can perform well as container specimens or houseplants if you provide them with excellent growing conditions.
Select a high-quality, well-drained potting medium formulated for acid-loving plants. Avoid any medium that contains lime; choose or prepare one with peat moss, cottonseed meal or another lightly acidifying material. Inspect the roots, trimming off any that are dead, diseased or broken.
Set the root mass in the prepared container atop the medium. Add or remove medium under the root mass, if needed, to adjust the height of the gardenia. Add more medium around the roots, as needed, to account for any settling.
You can keep the gardenia in a bright window during the winter and move it outdoors during warm weather, setting it in a lightly shaded spot. As a general rule, water the gardenia whenever the soil an inch below the surface feels dry to the touch.
Gardenias are somewhat drought tolerant, but fluctuating moisture levels can cause bud drop. Fertilizers formulated for acid-loving plants may have a or similar formula, but may also contain cottonseed meal, iron sulfate or sulfur to lower or maintain a low pH.
Dilute the fertilizer and apply it as frequently as recommended by the manufacturer. Either apply a water-soluble fertilizer approximately once a month or sprinkle a slow-release supplement over the medium in the container only once every few months.
Pruning at other times can remove flower buds. Cut back overly vigorous, out-of-place or crossing branches, making each cut slightly angled and just above a branch or bud facing in the desired direction. Place a few inches of well-drained potting medium, ideally slightly acidic, in the bottom of the container.
Fill in the space around the root mass with the medium and water it in thoroughly.
