Care Information

General Care

Watering: Gardenias need 1 inch of water/rain each week. Keep the soil constantly damp but not soggy Sun: Full sun to light shade. Pruning: Prune the gardenia bush after flowering has ceased to keep the plant in good condition.

Planting Guidelines

Fall or spring is the most suitable time for planting the gardenia bush. Select a spot with full sun to light shade and where the soil is acidic. Dig a hole that is twice as wide than the root ball. Place fresh soil at the bottom of the hole and place gardenia in so the top of the root ball is even with the soil surface. Fill in soil and water deeply. You can apply a 2inch layer of mulch to help retain moisture.

Winter Care

Gardenias are cold sensitive and may die during severe winters. You can protect gardenias in winter by covering them with a blanket during brief cold periods. In areas with heavy snow you can use a cardboard box to cover the shrub to avoid bending of branches with snow.

Potting & Container

Gardenias can be successfully grown in containers or treated as indoor plants. If growing a gardenia indoors insure, they receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight. High humidity is essential to indoor gardenia care. Keep in a 1 gallon for first 6 months then gradually increase to a 3 gallon.

I purchased my 1st gardenia 12 years ago as a remembrance to the mother of a fallen soldier. Now 12 later she still has a beautiful plant to enjoy and think of her warrior son. I purchased my 2nd one recently for my sister in law who lost her mom. I hope she gets as much enjoyment out of it. On a side note the owners and staff of this great company have hearts of gold and are patriots 🙏🏻
Hello Joe,

2 comments1. Plant received is beautiful2. However, box Indicated it was a Magnolia tree and the care pamphlet indicated Magnolia. However I ordered a Gardenia Plant. Plant looks like it is a gardenia. I called your phone number and got vm. I left message asking what was shipped … magnolia tree would not be acceptable as we have height restrictions. If a gardenia was sent please provide care instructions.I left my phone number and email address. No response to date.So plant is beautiful but response to inquiry was non existent.BTW this is the 3rd time I’ve ordered from your company in 3 months. First 2 were fine with the appropriate care cards. This last one while the plant is beautiful I’ve yet to hear a response as to what was shipped.
Good afternoon,
Thank you for your order, and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am sorry that you did not receive a response to your voicemail. I know that is frustrating, and it is not up to our customer service standards. Please send me a picture of what you received, and I will be happy to send you the care instructions, and make sure that you were sent the correct plant. If not, we will send the correct one.
Again, my sincerest apologies.

Dear Jackie,
I am sorry you are disappointed with your purchases of the Gardenia plant. Unfortunately blooms will not always be present when shipped, but the buds will soon appear. Once this happens, it won’t be long until the buds push forth their fragrant blooms.
I hope you will allow us to serve you in the future.

Seeds of Life is my "go to" gift for friends who have lost a loved one. It is a beautiful way to help them remember their loved one. And, unlike flowers, this gift keeps on living.
Hello Pam-
We are very honored to be your "go to" for these special memorial gifts. We appreciate your loyal business.
To have a living memorial and tribute to the loved ones gone from this earth, is healing and comforting. You can still share your dreams, hopes, worries, or just your daily activity with these trees and plants. Their roots will stay strong for you and their branches will hug you as you remember and their flowers are kisses from nature.
We hope to continue to be your top choice in your thoughtful and kind gifts.

I ordered a Magnolia tree for a friend who suffered a great loss. I wanted to send something that the family could plant and nurture, something that wouldn't just wither and get tossed in the trash. The tree arrived quickly and they were so appreciative of the gesture. I will order again, for sure.
Dear Cami-
Thank you so much for taking the time to complete a review. We appreciate you and your business.
You are exactly right, and it is the basis when we built the company. Sending a beautiful tree is a meaningful way to tell another that you are walking next to them with support, encouragement and love. We want our trees to symbolize hope, endurance and our trees are long lasting gifts that can be enjoyed for decades and even centuries.
We send our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to your friend during this most difficult time. May there be comfort, hope and peace.

Recently sent a gardenia plant to dear friends who lost a loved one. The plant arrived on time as promised, but was accidentally put in the garage by a neighbor because the family it was sent to were not at home. It was almost a week later before they found it, but it was perfectly fine & they were very touched by it.
Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. We appreciate you.
We take great pride in ensuring that we send our best quality products; we give a lot if care and attention in the pre-shipping process, and packaging of our trees. We hope that this beautiful plant will continue to bloom and be a reminder of your friend's dear loved one and their memories will blossom.

This is the second time I have used Seeds of Life and couldn’t be more pleased. I ordered a gardenia bush for a friend whose Father had passed away. She loved it and I was so excited when she sent me a picture. I did not think it would have a bloom on it because it was so early in the season, but it did and she told me later there was another one getting ready to bloom. Love the presentation and quality of their products and will definitely use them.

Arrived without blooms but lush and full of potential. I hadn’t fully considered that the bereaved family would have the burden of planting it in a pot, but a neighbor kindly did the honors. The widow has already sent me a photo and loves the little plaque that accompanied the plant. It’s worth the extra expense every time.
So heartfelt touching

Seeds of life is a great company that stands by their product!!! We lost our son on 3/21/18. Our daughters teacher sent us this memorial gardenia tree. Our intentions were to see how it did the 1st year & if it did well, we would add his ashes to it. Unfortunately it did not make it through the winter. I contacted customer service & emailed pictures of it just to see if there was anything I could do to bring it back. I wasn’t expecting anything as it had been a year since we received it. Since this was s gift I had I nonreceipt or anything. Without question they immediately sent me out a replacement!! So far this new one has flourished beautifully & is still doing amazing. It brings me such joy to tend to it in honor of our son! Through my support group I have made some friends who are part of my dreaded “club”. My friend’s daughter’s 1st heavenly birthday is coming & I am going to send her a memorial tree. So thank you seeds of life you helping me to keep my sons memory alive!! 💙

I think the Seeds of Life is a great company, I myself received a Hydrangea Bush when my mother passed away. I now sent a Magnolia tree to my sister-in-law when her mother passed away. It arrived 2 or 3 days after I ordered it, which is amazing. Great company.
