Gardenia in Red Clay Q's
I have a Gardenia that is 5' tall growing in Alabama Red Clay. It is the only surviving Gardenia I have. So I really want to get this right.
I need input from anyone who has experience with Growing Gardenia in Alabama.
I want to transplant the Gardenia from the spot it is in to a different part of my yard this spring.
I had planted 5 Gardenia about 2 years ago and this plant is the only one that survived the winter and has been thriving and blooming ever since.
My plan is to dig out at least 2ft around the base and as deep as the roots go..In an attempt not to damage any of the root ball. And then moving it to an area that has similar shelter from winter winds..
Is there anything else I should do??. Since the plant is happy in Alabama Red Clay I was not planning on amending the soil...Should I amend the soil??
