Newbie question about pruning gardenias(?)

primavera_growerFebruary 22, 2009

I'm a newbie and I just "inherited" a gardenia bush from when I bought a house and moved in.

Does it need any pruning? When? Other tips to help grow gardenia?

You do not have to prune them.

Keep an eye out for iron chlorosis: yellow/pale leaves with dark green veins on new growth.
