Gardenias actually prefer to be a bit root bound.
Make sure you have not chosen too large of a container.

Too much room in the pot, leads to overwatering and possible root rot.

Yellowing leaves can indicate a watering issue; too much or too little.
Soil should be moist, but never soggy.

Gardenias are a finicky plant and even more so in an indoor location.
They need a very high humidity.
