leggy gardenia

Zone Austin Texas | davis.maureen added on October 15, 2015 | Answered

What to do with an aging gardenia that's very branchy and only small blooms at the top? The gardenia is very leggy, long and tall with only a few blooms at present at the top. It was planted many years ago and not pruned. Still alive and I would like to know what to do to keep it alive and when to prune.
