Commonly Asked Questions

How do I look after my Gardenia Espalier?

Espaliered plants will continue to grow beyond the current lattice. You can snip off the existing lattice to attach a larger lattice or an additional one. Espaliered plants grow well along guide wires. Plants can also be pruned back to smaller sizes to suit compact gardens. When planted along a fence line, Gardenia espaliers can soften the hardscape, add visual interest, and provide a fragrant barrier. Ensure that the fence receives enough sunlight for optimal growth and flowering.

 

Can Gardenia Espaliers be kept in a pot?

Yes they can, their compact shrub form makes them ideal for planter pots. Be sure to select a planter pot with ample room for growth and one that allows for good draining. Keep in mind plants in a pot will typically grow a little slower than something that is planted in the ground. Planted pots also dry out more quickly, ensure plants receive plenty of water, especially in warmer months.

 

How do I keep my Gardenia Espaliers looking healthy?

Ensure Gardenias are well watered, especially during the warmer months. A layer of mulch will help retain the moisture in the soil. A quality fertiliser will also increase the health of your plant. A gentle prune is also suitable. Gardenias prefer well-drained, acidic soil. Amending the soil with organic matter and using an acidic fertilizer can support their growth.
