The scent of gardenias is often used in perfume, so place this dazzling shrub near doorways or paths so that you can enjoy its fragrance - just imagine sitting on your patio this summer surrounded by its intoxicatingly sweet perfume - heavenly!

Plant Information

Top Tips

Although Gardenia prefers full sun, some shade is necessary during the hotter months of the year to prevent leaf scorch and bud drop.

Care Guide

Planting your Gardenia jasminoides 'Sweet Heart':

  • Outside, choose a sheltered position, ideally in dappled or partial shade.
  • Prefers well-drained, fertile and slightly acidic soil or can be grown in a large container of ericaceous (acid) compost.
  • Before planting, water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole along with some ericaceous compost if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for your 'Sweet Heart' Hardy Gardenia:

  • Feed your gardenia well throughout the growing season (spring and summer) with a nitrogen-rich fertiliser in summer to avoid yellowing of the leaves.
  • Water regularly until your plant is fully established - use rainwater where possible and keep the soil moist (but not saturated).
  • Over winter, although perfectly hardy, plants will benefit from some protection if it gets very cold. You can move container grown plants into a frost-free area or cover with good horticultural fleece.
  • Continue to feed plants with a balanced fertiliser over winter but reduce to once every 5-6 weeks. Reduce watering too, but do not allow the soil to fully dry out.

 

Pruning Advice for Gardenia 'Sweet Heart':

  • Remove faded flowers to improve the appearance of your plant.
  • If necessary, trim lightly in early spring after flowering to help maintain a neat shape.
