: : My friend has a gardenia that is hugh, it's at least 10 to 12 ft high and probaly 20 ft around, leaves on the east side or sparse, on the back side nice nice and green, lots of blooms. I have lots of books, but not a one says how and when she can prune it, or can she??? HELP
: See if this helps.
: Try a search at www.google.com and put in quotes with a plus sign like this: "prune" + "gardenia"
: Good luck,
Prune the plant in the dormant season. Make sure to cut it in a way that the lower branches get sun (ideally, in an upside-down 'V' shape).
