Gardenia care

Anonymous added on June 20, 2015 | Answered

Attempting to take the best care I can of my Gardenias, I'd like to know if they are meant to be planted in the ground, and not be a potted plant outside. I bought the acid-type of fertilizer from Wal-Mart where I got my bushes. The directions says to sprinkle the fertilizer around the plant's base and then water the plant, making sure that the fertilizer doesn't get in touch with anything else, as it could stain driveways, patios, etc. To wash or sweep off thoroughly, immediately after application. Is there any pre-made fertilizer good for Gardenias, that won't cause such a mess to work with? This was called: Rite Green Azalea, Camellia and Gardenia 6-4-8 Fertilizer. Any help is most appreciated.
