Relocating a Large Gardenia Bush


Anonymous added on November 8, 2010 | Answered

We had to pull out a large gardenia bush due to remodeling on our home. Can I replant this gardenia in another spot? Will it survive? What do I need to do in order to save it?

It may or may not survive a move. Gardenias don't like change and the larger the plant is when you move it, the more likely it is to die. That being said, you can improve its chances of its survival by making sure to dig up as much of the rootball as possible. Move it quickly from the old location to the new one. Have the new location dug up and ready for the plant even before you dig it up from the old location. Then, trim the plant back by 1/3-1/2 once it is moved and water it frequently.
