My gardenias is about 2 years old, it is planted in the ground. It bloomed the first year but has not bloomed since. It is growing very well, long new branches( they look wild)but no buds of flowers. I live in Fl, it get afternoon sun. Do I have to trim the long branches back?

You will want to remove spent blooms when they occur, and keep any unsightly branches trimmed. I would apply an all-purpose fertilizer just to help them out some. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/gardenia/gardenia-plant.htm
