Transplanting Part of a Gardenia Bush

Anonymous added on September 9, 2011 | Answered

My gardenia is more like a bush. It is over 6 ft. round and 6 ft. tall and has about 5 or 6 main branches going in the ground. I'm not sure if the root system is one big bulb or 5 or 6 different ones connected. I am also not sure how to transplant just one or two of the branches, or would that damage my plant. Please help.
