A wonderful and beautiful way to remember a loved one, this gardenia comes nestled in a creamy white ceramic pot. These gardenias are a lovely ivory white, and have a light, pleasant scent. This can be kept inside or you can choose to plant outside. They love to have at least five hours of sun each day.

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.

The soul & spirit of the tree
I wasn't present to actually see the tree myself so I can only tell you how my friend said it raised her sister's spirits just a tiny bit during her deep grief from the sudden death & tragic loss of her daughter. My friend said that her sister said, "...I know EXACTLY where I'm gonna plant it". That response tells me that this tree's purpose has been received even in the midst of all the sadness, grief, and darkness. The smallest of a light for my friend was all I ask for in this tree gift and,...it worked!

Dear Sandra-
Thank you for sharing the story behind this beautiful memorial tree. We appreciate your business.
The pain of losing a child is horrible, and the most unbearable feeling of emptiness and heartache. I truly wish that your friend may be able to find peace and hope again one day; the ability to raise her chin, find reason to smile again. It seems so unfair and not how the circle of life shall be. No parent shall ever wish to outlive their children. I am sending a virtual hug to the family and my most sincere sympathy and condolences.
"Sending a dove to heaven, with a parcel on its wing. Be careful when you open it, it's full of beautiful things, just like you. Inside are a million kisses, wrapped in a million more hugs. To say how much I miss you, ands send you all my love. I hold you close within my heart and there you will remain . With every tear I may cry, I hope it gives me strength to walk throughout the day, until we meet again."
I am so sincerely sorry for her loss and will continue to send thoughts and prayers.
Warmly,
Maleena
Beautiful memorial
I sent this Gardenia to a dear friend who lost her daughter. She said it was a beautiful memorial and has been so special to her and her family. Seeds of Life has been such a wonderful family to help bring peace and comfort to loved ones during their time of need. I can’t thank them enough for what they do.

It Brought Comfort
My friend lost her mother a year ago and it has been very, very difficult for her. The potted gardenia arrived exactly on the anniversary date of her mom's death, as I had hoped. She was so touched and comforted that she and her mom were remembered in such a beautiful way. The potted gardenia was "gorgeous", arriving in great condition. I will use seedsoflife again. .

Dear Brenda-
Thank you for your recent purchase and taking the time to complete a review. We appreciate your business.
Losing a mom is so very hard, this is the woman that guided you, nurtured you, loved you more than her own self, made sacrifices and made all the boo boos better with a little touch. In many cases this is your best friend. A kind word to your friend, "may she fine hope and peace knowing that her mom continues to walk beside her holding her hand, encouraging her and reminding her to be strong". The days will come when they hug again, but until then, look at the skies and feel your mom whispering softly with the breeze, " it's okay, I am okay, I am with others that we missed and I love you ."
Warmly,

Flowers don't last. This will. Liked that I could add a custom note on the engraved stick thing. Recipients really loved it.

Dear Meaghan -
You are absolutely right! It can be so difficult to think of what we should do as sympathy gift. A plant or tree is always a good option. A memorial garden provides a long-lasting tribute to loved one, including pets. It will offer a place for the family to remember and to heal.
We hope they feel comfort, peace and healing in time.
Thank you for allowing us the honor to be a part of such a special memorial gift.

Unsatisfactory
This was for my best friend, she lost her dad and I sent it with a gift message. They sent it with a memorial tag for someone else who had passed and she had no idea it was from me. She posted on Facebook asking who had sent it. I was upset and disappointed.

Dear Charlotte -
I would like to first apologize for this error. I know that you put a lot of thought into this memorial gift and I am sure you felt rather embarrassed for her to not even know whom the gift came from.
We truly value you as a customer and hope you will allow us to make this right, re-earn your trust and business. As that valued and repeat customer, I am sure you are aware that we are a small family owned farm and we do take pride in what we do and always strive for excellence. I am truly disappointed to know that we fell short of both your expectations and our standards. I believe that sometimes there will be accidental mistakes because there of course is a human involved.

My aunt was truly touched when she received this living gift in memory of her brother. It's really a special way of remembering a loved one. Great idea!! I had received a magnolia from the seeds of life when my mom passed and now I try to also send to relatives and friends who have lost a loved one. It is a lasting and meaningful expression of sympathy!

Sympathy Flowers - Gardenia plant
My sister in-law wrote to tell me how beautiful her Gardenia was, and that it reminded of her mom who just passed away. "Mom was always loved gardening, and I've inherited that same love of gardening. This beautiful, fragrant plant brings back many happy memories of Mom. Thanks so much for caring enough to send the very best. Much love, Toni". Also there was a glitch in that I accidently entered MY home address instead of the recipient's address. When I realized it, I made a quick call to your Customer Service person (Janelle, I think), and she was absolutely amazing. She quickly interceded, changed the address, and PRESTO!!!!, all was well with that order. Many kudos to Janelle (Ithink).

Dear Gerald-
I would like to first send our condolences, thoughts and prayers to your sister-in-law and the family during this difficult time of grief and loss. A mom is the person who loved you first and the one who loves you most. A mother is always with us, first in her lifetime, then the rest of our lives in our memory.
May this beautiful gardenia bring peace and comfort, with its light and sweet aroma and lovely blooms but allow the memories to be happy for the time she was here rather then the mourning of the time she has left.
We are very honored to be a part of your thoughtful and kind gift. Thank you for your recent purchase and taking the time to complete a review. We appreciate you business.

Highly Recommend
This is the second time I have purchased a plant from Seeds of Life for people in my life that I wanted to show my support to. First, Seeds of Life is much more affordable than many of these florist companies out there. Second, they offer something a bit different. Third, from ordering to delivery, it has been easy which is something I'm grateful for. Whether it's this plant or any other, I highly recommend Seeds of Life.

I’ve ordered this 3 times for friends who’ve lost loved ones. Each time the recipient is so happy to have received a plant instead of vased flowers they’d have to throw away. I’ve never seen it in person but I’ve only heard wonderful things. I’ll keep purchasing it.

Amazing
I purchased this plant for a friend of mine whose brother had recently passed at the far too young age of 38 due to COVID-19. They received it and told me how unbelievably happy they were to receive a gift that did not die, like most of the flowers they had received and had to throw out, but also bloomed immediately and made them feel like their loved one was near. I have pictures of the plant and plaque for anyone who needs them- they were honestly gorgeous. I highly recommend this company, thank you for helping my friend in her time of need!!
