How To Plant
A heat loving evergreen shrub, Gardenia wants full sun (light shade in the afternoon in the southern end of its range works best). Make sure the soil around your Gardenia has a 2" covering of an organic mulch. Your gardenia will thrive best in a soil high in organic material. Gardenias do require consistent moisture but you don't want to plant it in soggy soil. Snow Girl has good deer resistance so protection from this pest is not needed!
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
