Caring For Your Gardenias Plant gardenias where they will get morning sun and afternoon shade. Good air circulation is a must. Gardenias prefer moist, acid soil with good drainage & lots of organic matter. When planting, set the root-ball about 1" higher than the surrounding soil. Gently taper the soil up to the top of the exposed root-ball. Mulch. Pests (whiteflies, scales, & mealybugs). can be a problem. Control by applying a light horticultural oil to prevent sooty mold.

Why Are There Yellow Leaves on my Gardenia Bush?

What is causing the leaves on my gardenia bush to turn yellow? It is getting plenty of water and is on our screened patio getting the morning sun. It is blooming, but not much. Some leaves are dark green, but some are turning yellow and dying.

gardenia bush/hedge. This might be a nice replacement for those rosebushes under the windows next to the house...This is apparently very bad for the dogs if they eat it.....
