Can the plant be planted in a container if so how large of container?

Asked by Sunshine2244 February 5, 2017
1
Answer

Yes this plant can be planted in a container, and I would pick a container that would be 3 or more gallons that will have plenty of room for the roots to grow. Make sure to use a slow-release gardenia fertilizer to make sure your plant is getting all the appropriate nutrients and make sure to water the container 2-3 times per week.

Are the Frost Proof Quaranteed? If so, what is the guaratee and for how long?

Asked by Terri September 9, 2016

Hello Terri! Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. This item is more frost-hardy than other cultivars meaning that it resists cold better than other gardenias. There isn't a guarantee or warranty associated with this item. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

I purchased three of these shrubs online during the quarantine. I had a nine foot garden bed in my backyard where I usually plant annual flowers. I decided to plant something a little more permanent, so I don’t have to plant there every year. These shrubs arrived healthy and strong looking. I planted them in my yard almost three weeks ago, and they seem to have taken to the spot. No yellowing of leaves or shedding of leaves as of yet. They were about 2 ft tall upon arrival, and nicely full. The leaves were and are still shiny. A vibrant green color. I’m not expecting flowers this year, but am hoping they flower by next summer. Maybe I’ll update this review once they do flower.

Receipt of a yellow leaf Gardenia
Just received my online Gardenia plant fit $39.99 and took a picture of a yellow leaf gardenia plant. Looks dried up and not healthy. Better to buy directly from a store and forget the online plant purchase
