Rated 5 out of 5 by teach07 Loads of Blossoms!
As the weather has cooled, and the rain has returned, these two trees have exploded with buds! I can count at least ten to fifteen on each tree just this morning! So happy to see them thriving.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BetJan So, so happy with my Gardenia Tree!
Be patient with your gardenia tree and it will thank you with many beautiful flowers. Most important - do not over-water as the leaves will yellow and fall.
I had my Gardenia Tree for several months when it began to display brown leaves that would drop off quickly. We discovered that it was infected with Whiteflies which form a white powder around new growth. I called the seller direct and was given perfect advice. I removed the tree from the pot, discarded all of the soil, washed the roots and tree with a soft spray from the hose, cleaned the container with a mild Clorox solution, and then repotted the tree in fresh soil. Gone were the Whiteflies and the tree is once more beautiful and green. No more dropping leaves and it is growing much taller. I also occasionally sprayed the tree with Bayer Rose and Flower Insect Killer. I am now so happy with my Gardenia Tree. We live in Florida where most plants grow easily, but where ever you live, beware of the Whiteflies; they can kill your plants. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE MY GARDENIA TREE.

This plant died after my husband and I took very good care of it. It died soon after it arrived.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rachel1837 Saddest tree ever
It was cute and small when I received it with lots of buds and 1 blossom that smelled amazing. That was the end of anything good for this tree. I put it in a large pot, bought special soil for gardenias. Had it on my porch and watched it slowly dying. Bought special fertilizer and water treatment for gardenias. It continued to die. I moved it out to my lawn to give it more daily sunshine, it got worse. I moved it to my backyard. Worse. It's been 5 months. I've never seen a flower. I've never seen a bud open. I should have clued in after week 1 when it lost half of it's leaves, and requested a refund. But I thought maybe it was just trauma from it being shipped or that I could save it. Total waste of money.
Rated 3 out of 5 by darla1213 Great Smell
Love the smell of gardenia and was excited to get this. I only had one large flower that lasted several days and smelled great. The rest of the flowers that have bloomed, although smell great, have been rather small and only last a short time. Hopefully next year it will yield better flowers

This has bloomed on my deck and fills the backyard with a delicious scent. Impressed.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Megs Garden Worse purchase ever!!!
This is my third tree purchased and again it did not bloom...it's past the warranty and 90 days is not enough time to tell if this plant will grow...the vry first tree is in full bloom from about 4 years ago...then I purchased one last year and it died outside of the warranty so I decided to try it one more time, because my first one is always blooming and beautiful...well again this one is dying and there is nothing that Cottage farms will do about it...i'm really sorry but this is a total waste of money!
Rated 1 out of 5 by awalkingbird Terrible waste of time and mone
I did what the nursery told me to do. I brought the tree inside out of the coming heat. I misted it, fed it, watered it and so on. It died no matter what I did. They do not recommend where one should live to grow gardenias, but I would suggest some place cooler and with humidity. I transplanted it and placed it on a bed of stones so it would drain properly and have humidity. I am very disappointed in the financial loss.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kmikk Do not purchase!!!!
This is the worst! I purchased this tree, planted and cared for it according to instructions. It began to look bad within a few days, and continued to die a slow death, in spite of everything I tried. I will NEVER purchase any plants from QVC again. I have a garden of other plants that are thriving, so I seriously doubt it was anything I had done!
Rated 4 out of 5 by MickiMac Nice Tree
Very nice easy to grow double gardenia tree. Just wish it was fuller, perhaps it'll take off next year. Lovely, fragrant flowers. Recommend.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Lrorwo No buds or flowers
Let me first say I have other Cottage Farm plants that are really doing well and are beautiful, BUT, this gardenia tree is another story. Not (1) bud, I will continue to baby this tree and maybe it will get blooms.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Chongosmom Very Sad
When this came I was so excited to have a beautiful fragrance on the patio, boy was I wrong. It got buds on it but they never bloomed, just shriveled up and fell off. Now the poor thing is so sickly looking (worse than charlie browns Christmas tree).
Will be asking for a replacement since it cost so much.
