how to re-root gardenia (cape jasmine)
i live in houston. my great aunt brought me some top cuttings from her established gardenia, and said they re-root if i stick them in moist ground. i've always wanted a gardenia, so i dipped the slant cut ends into root hormone, and into some miracle grow soil, and then watered them well with miracle grow bloom enhancer fertilizer. i set the pots in an area that receives about 4-6 hours of sun a day. the rest of the time they are in bright shade. i just need some advice on whether this is a good strategy or if i'm totally going at this the wrong way! has anyone else done this?
