when to prune the gardenia
Any advice? I'm basically working on my mother's and grandmother's wisdom when it comes to woody stemmed flowering bushes - only prune them immediately after they bloom because they set buds in the stems early. But that is basically azalea wisdom. And I'm not sure it applies to gardenias.
Mine is very happy (it gets lots of coffee grounds and no other care.) It's getting a little leggy, so I want to cut it back a bit, hoping to encourage more bushy growth. Now that it's pretty much done blooming (but sent out a couple late blooms this week) am I safe to prune it a little?
gardenia people - please weigh in.
