Last year my gardenia bush had buds but they would all fall off before they bloomed. I haven't done anything differently this year but it seems to be thriving! I think within a few weeks this plant will be covered with blooming flowers. I love the scent but my daughter hates it. I've met a few other people who don't like it either. Do you like the scent of gardenias?
My hydrangea next to it is starting to bloom also and the lilies and roses are close to blooming too. I love June, everything blooms in unison in my little, tiny, pint-size garden.
