When to gardenias typically bloom?

Jen26(USDA zone 6/MO)June 22, 2005

I bought a g. vetchii this spring (April or so) and it was covered with buds. As soon as I got it home, every bud promptly fell off the plant. I put the gardenia in a prime spot outside in my garden, and it's thriving but so far, no buds. When do gardenias typically bloom? Also, since I see no buds, I've been fertilizing with Miracid, but I heard that you don't fertilize it when it's got buds...does that sound right? Thanks.
