Potted Gardenia

Anonymous added on October 27, 2011 | Answered

I bought a potted gardenia in the spring. It has been in the conservatory since and has bloomed nonstop. What should I feed it and when? Also, does it need to be repotted?

If it is potted, you can fertilize with a water based fertilizer every few weeks. In terms of repotting, keep an eye on the bottom of the pot and when you see roots beginning to peek out, it is time to repot. Be aware that repotting will stress the plant and should only be done when necessary and when you do it, expect it to drop its blooms and possibly a few leaves.
