I have 4 gardenias that were planted last summer by a local company along with a crepe myrtle and a few holly shrubs. All are doing bad right now. 1 gardenia has completely died off and the others aren't too far away. Is there anything I can do to save the last 3?

We are just a bit far north for outdoor Gardenias...our winters are a little too long/too cold and they are tropical plants that like year round warm/humid weather. I had one in Atlanta an it could just barely survive the winter there, and even then it had to be planted in a corner on a specific side of my house. I had one in W-S too and kept it in a patio pot so I could bring it up near the house in winter, but it died last year. I would pot them and bring them inside for the winter if you can...that's what I'm doing with a small one that I have now.

This just reminded me of a gardenia that I had for several years. I kept it in a large container on our open deck in W-S. Every other year or so, it looked like it was trying to die. I would cut it way back and it would sprout new growth again, but never did thrive in W-S. We moved to Greenville, SC for 4 years and it absolutely exploded on our back patio once it got acclimated. The last two years we were there, it had LOTS of blossoms. When we sold our home in Greenville, I left it behind.
