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.

Perfect memorial gift
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.

Beautiful memorial
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.

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.
Very Pleased
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.

Magnolia Bush
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.

Love everything about this
Bought as a remembrance for a friend. The engraved tag was so cool and different - I will definitely order again. Timely delivered too!
I sent this to a friend in another state and even though I didn’t see it she was very appreciative. She has lost two family members days apart and she will plant the gift in her yard. She stated that the gift was beautiful.

Great Idea
I ordered one for a future family member that had a late miscarriage. They were able to plant the plant as a small memorial of their loss. It was nice to get them something other than a flower arrangement.

I ordered this for my friend's family because my colleagues did this in memory of my own wonderful dad. He was a gardener and the magnolia tree was beautiful. I ordered a gardenia for my friend because I knew she and her family would love it and help her cope.

Lovely sympathy gift
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
Received a gardenia w/engraved memory stake. Our so. Passed on 2/8/2020. Absolutely beautiful. Wrapped perfectly and all instructions included Not sure when they ordered or time it took for the personalization but it was worth any time waiting. Just touchingly beautiful.

I bought the large Gardenia for my friend who lost her mother-in-law and she loved it! She said that the presentation was beautiful, it was large and full of blooms. I also purchased the personalized sign and she said that it was also very nice. She was brought to tears by this gift and said it was gorgeous and so special. I would definitely purchase from here again.

Keeping my son alive
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!! 💙

Seeds of Life Review
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.
