Gardening: Gardenias, while difficult to grow, have a beautiful payoff

Shari Armstrong ( “A gardenia bush with yellow leaves is a common problem and can be very difficult to ultimately fix. If, after your best efforts, your gardenia still does not survive, don’t be too hard on yourself. Even master gardeners with years of experience can lose gardenia bushes despite their best efforts. Gardenias are a beautiful but fragile plant.”Let’s stop here for just one moment. Many gardeners who have gone through the stages of gorgeous gardenia selection at the nursery through painstaking planting where soil was meticulously prepared to precisely match gardenia soil needs, only to helplessly watch as those efforts went for naught, may well bristle at the suggestion that they should consider planting gardenias again.Gardenias are somewhat like orchids, however, in the sense that you may see any number of them die before catching onto what their proper care involves: part art, part science, part experience, part love.Let’s say you planted your gardenia in a recommended soil mix. But the soil seems to be constantly wet, which could be due to fine-textured soil mix ingredients, especially peat moss. Gardenias like a somewhat moist soil but abhor wet soil since good drainage is crucial to them. In such a case surround your plant with a 3-inch layer of finished compost. This will help to open up the soil below.I was prompted to write about gardenias after receiving emails from correspondents in Florida and in San Diego, much more favorable locales for growing gardenias than Los Angeles. Yet both expressed enormous frustration. Based on the dialogue conducted and photos received from each, it became apparent that both had erred in exposing their plants to insufficient light.Gardenias should receive half a day of sun and a bit more. If you can surround them with plants of similar stature, it will help in increasing ambient humi... (The Pasadena Star-News)
