Gardenia moving outside
My gardenia and I have a deal. It tries to hang on during the winter; I bring it outside for as long as possible. But I'm concerned about the transition. During the winter, it is in a window with bright indirect light and a smidgen of west sun in the late afternoon. Now, it goes onto a screened porch. I can give it full south morning/noon sun; bright, indirect northern light; or heavily-shaded western light. Which would the experts opt for? I have read the FAQs and searched on sun, but wasn't able to find something so specific. I have no doubt that the gardenia will think that whatever I choose is wrong, but I'd rather be less wrong if possible.
Oh, I'm not going for blooms - that is a dream for the future. I just want it fat, glossy and sassy again.
