Garden Affair : Gardenia

 Monsoon has been disappointing by far in our region . Although there is a month left for the monsoon season there is a possibility of revival  of the rainy season  in upcoming weeks. It is exciting time for the blooms as humid weather has made favorable conditions for the plants to bear flowers .


                     Gardenia is one of the most fragrant flower I have come across  in the flora world. Although this plant resembles jasmine alike large  blooms  but it belongs to coffee family.                              



Gardenia care and Fertilization                                                                                                         


Gardenia is a hardy plant that thrives in semi cool climate and likes to be fertilized once in a month t  hat  helps in the blooming throughout the year .
