Can Gardenia Survive CT Winter

Anonymous added on August 26, 2011 | Answered

I have had a gardenia plant in a pot on my back deck since this past June. It has considerable growth since then and now I want to know how to care for it this winter. Should I plant it, or keep it in a heated garage? If the latter, at what temp?

Depending on its size, you may want to lightly trim it prior to overwintering. I would suggest bringing it indoors. Here is an article that you may find helpful:
