Gardenia, Dead or Not?

Anonymous added on April 16, 2012 | Answered

One of my potted gardenias got moved and did not get enough water so it became crunchy and brown. My landscaper said that it should come back with water because the main branches are green inside. Should I prune off the dead stuff? Can it be saved?

As long as the stems are still green, the plant should regrow. The following articles should be of some help to you:
