This is the Gardenia cutting I took which has now flowered. So pleased with it.

Because they like an acid soil, I put a teaspoon of cider vinegar to two pints of water about once a month. I never leave them sitting in water and only give them a good soak when needed.

I've never had any luck with gardenia, buds always fall of before opening. Great advice @sandrawalker47 will try again now 👍

They really are a temperamental little plant but don't give up as they are beautiful and smell heavenly.

You can add aluminium sulphate (hydrangea colourant) to the soil/compost to lower the PH
