Pruning Gardenia Bushes
I have a gardenia bush that was planted several years ago before we bought the house. It is covered with sooty mold and I want to prune it back severly. The sooty mold is so prevalent that just spraying it won't be sufficient. Can someone tell me if gardenias bloom on old or new growth and what the pitfalls might be if I do prune it "way" back?
Thanks for any and all information.
