I am on a mission to grow a beautiful gardenia bush and have lots and lots of good smelling beautiful gardenias. She's coming along. All the buds have fallen off so far, but I will keep trying.
This is when I first brought her home and transplanted her into this planter, then fertilized, and watered.
This is today. Looking good so far. I put her on a plate with stones that I keep with water for humidity which I have read that she needs. I not dare move her or touch her, just water once and week and fertilize once a month. I do, however look at her a lot and silently ask her to please give me some gardenias, as they are my favorite flower in the whole wide world.
I Wish You Love,
