Gardenia Plants
Q.

Is it ok to cut back gardenias this time of year?

These gardenias are big in size, not dwarfs. I've had them planted for years and they have reached about six feet in size. I want to cut them way down about halfway so that when they bloom next year they will be full with lots of flowers and won't be leggy.
