    Adventures in antiquing: Avon perfume bottle filled with gardenias


    Pitchers and glass bottles are just about the EASIEST thing to find at a secondhand store – and they make for a beautiful, unique home for a bunch of fresh flowers! Just be sure to clean them thoroughly as they will have probably collected a bit of dust.

    Gardenia Gardenia prefers a humid, very bright environment. Water and fertilize it regularly in spring and summer; hold off on the fertilizer and let the potting mix barely dry between waterings in fall and winter. Protect it from hot and cold drafts. Test Garden Tip: Keep your gardenia happy by periodically using a fertilizer formulated for acid-loving plants such as azaleas.
