How To Care for your new Jubilation™ Gardenia

When planting your Jubilation Gardenia be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant Gardenias.  However, if you avoid freezing and extremely hot temperatures you can plant any time of the year.

This Gardenia requires full sun to part shade and prefers moist, well-drained, fertile, acidic soil.  If you have alkaline soil, be sure to amend your soil.  To acidify your soil mend with compost, elemental sulfur, or use fertilizers specific for acid loving plants.  Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution.  To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting. Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first year after planting.  After the first year, it is best to allow the soil to begin to dry out in between waterings. In very dry and hot environments, misting your gardenia's leaves daily or every other day will keep your plant happy.  Mulching at about 3 inches deep is highly recommended for gardenias.  Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your plant in extreme temperatures.  Choose a slow release fertilizer for acid loving plants.  Fertilize once in spring after the last chance of frost and 6 weeks later for best results.  You don’t need to prune gardenias, but pruning after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant.  Remove dead or crowded branches any time.  Avoid heavy pruning or pruning for shape anytime from fall until bloom as buds form in fall.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants.  Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. You can treat scale, whiteflies, and aphids naturally with neem oil or insecticidal soap.  For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin.  The Jubilation Gardenia is disease resistant so it isn't likely you will encounter fungal issues with this variety.


Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Gardenia are supposed to be highly scented & I selected them for my lanai to help obscure the smell of cigarettes from the lanai below me.
