Pruning Gardenia Bush
I live in central North Carolina and have a gardenia bush which is probably 5 or 6 years old--maybe more--and is planted on the south side of the house. The summer temperature here can sometimes get to between 90 and 100 degrees--usually runs between 80 and 90. This bush is planted under a window and is beginning to grow up past the window and needs to be pruned. When is the best time to prune the bush and should it be trimmed just enough to be below the window or should it be a trastic trim? At what time of year should we prune the bush?
